"If I have devoted rather more space than usual to a budget issue, it is for the simple reason that it deserves it"

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

This coupling from the Oxford Camerata represents one of Naxos’s most enticing bargains. The full-throated singing has spontaneous ardour but no lack of repose in the music’s more serene moments. Summerly offers the motet, Infelix ego, as a bonus. These readings are distinctive in a different way from those by the Tallis Scholars. The recording is outstandingly vivid.

This month’s real gem
