Review By BBC Radio 3,September 1996

"...if I had to have only one disc, I wouldn't hesitate to take the Naxos collection of Consort and Keyboard Music, Songs and Anthems."

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

This makes the perfect supplement to the excellent Naxos issue of Gibbons’s church music, with 22 items that cover a wide range of songs as well as instrumental music. The players of the Rose Consort, with agreeably tangy string-tone, contribute most of the instrumental pieces, culminating in two magnificent Fantazias in six parts: No. 3 with ear-catching writing, pointing forward to later centuries.
