Notes & Reviews:

The Observer, 9th June 2013
The extensive Eton Choirbook, compiled in the 15th century, contains the most highly elaborate, beautifully decorated gothic music in the English tradition...Van Nevel's choir of 15 singers is equal to all the melismatic challenges.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2013
The six women on the top line give a very good emulation of the English choirboy sound. So it is a warm welcome for Van Nevel's English foray and particularly for the programme...A thoroughly positive addition to the catalogue.

MusicWeb International, 10th September 2013
For lovers of early Tudor church music this recording is a must - and not only for the three premieres. Non-specialists should be warned: they may well be so entranced that they will have to have the other recordings of this wonderful music.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2013
These are wonderful pieces, performed in a warm acoustic and with a sure sense of monumental effect. It is the details that need tidying up...However, the choir deserves credit for its fine tuning and its sure-footed alertness to the overall musical architecture.

International Record Review, September 2013
The Europeans sing with perfect ensemble and full technical command of the music's many intricacies, allied with a full-blooded warmth and electrifying energy that distinguishes them from the more rarified-sounding English cathedral and college choirs.
