"…the lovely sound and supreme musicality of this performance… The authoritative David Thomas relishes every moment; Carolyn Watkinson brings tender dignity to 'He was despised'; Emma Kirkby has less to do than Judith Nelson but steals the show with her 'refiner's fire'. Despite minor reservations, this is an engrossing experience."

"an enjoyably fresh 'traditional-period' performance which is beautifully sung and a pleasure to watch but one can hear every word and the backcloth of Westminster Abbey is well used by the camera to provide a visual treat.
