Review By Basildon Evening Echo,

"sung here with a fervour which makes their continuing popularity understandable"

Review By Classic CD,

"This Naxos series is one of my favourites"

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Like David Hill, Jeremy Summerly moves the music of each Mass on fairly briskly until the Sanctus and Agnus Dei, when a poignant contrast. The two motets on which the Masses are based are sung as postludes, and very beautiful they are, especially the idyllic O magnum mysterium. Finally, the short Verse est in Luctum (a setting of a section of the Requim Mass) by Alonso Lôbo, a Spanish contemporary, ends the concert serenely. The recording is excellent and this is a fine bargain.
