Review By James Inverne,Gramophone,November 2011

With singing “astonishingly clean and focused”, it’s an important set.

Review By David Fallows,Gramophone,November 2011

A reissue of a magnificent and indispensable recording

these discs gives clear evidence of the most scrupulous preparation, a constant search for the intrinsic features of each individual piece.

Not only that but the recorded sound is magically clear: every detail is easily heard. That is of course partly a function of the singing, astonishingly clean and sharply focused, though with an energy and musicianship that breathe real life into each piece. Oddly, individual singers are not credited, so I cannot single out any for praise: actually, they are all exceptionally good.

The Hilliards and Musica Nova have given us—for the first time—two top-flight recordings. Any serious collection should have both.
