Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The 40-part motet (Spem in Alium) is one of the most successful items...the same was true of all the complex five-part writing, and therefore of most of the pieces. It is indeed a mighty collection...old favorites such as the popular alternatum Compline hymn 'Te Lucis', and the transfiguration hymn 'O Nata Lux': its delightful false relations in the final cadence delectably drawn out." - Gramophone
