Review By Steven Ritter,Audiophile Audition,September 2013

New York Polyphony sounds larger than they are. These four guys know how to project their sound, and it’s not just the way they are recorded.

So the works by Plummer, Byrd, and Tallis, are scaled-down in context but hardly in quality.

William Byrd was caught in the fire a number of times, and this Mass displays his unique and unflagging ability to put heart and soul into every line of notes he writes.

Tallis[’]…Mass is nearly syllabic, saving counterpoint for special moments and used only sparingly…This beautiful work is a good introduction to the composer for those who don’t know him.
