Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Andrew Parrott's choir have a sharp-edged quality that is most impressive. The textures are as clear as a bell, and the intonation is excellent. Some listeners may actually find it almost too clear and unyielding, a little out of kilter with the misty perpendicular-architecture sound that the soaring lines seem to imply. ...Even if it does not quite match your own idea of the music, however, you will surely welcome this rather different approach and find it highly invigorating."
David Fallows, The GRAMOPHONE
