Review By Classic CD,

"A treat"

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Here is a useful and inexpensive cross-section of Byrd’s secular output that gives a good idea not only of its artistic riches but of its sheer variety. Both the ensembles recorded here, the Rose Consort of viols and Red Byrd, are in good form, and Timothy Roberts and Tessa Bonner are sensitive and expert exponents of this repertoire. The recorded sound is eminently clean and well balanced, and there is plenty of space round the aural image, which greatly enhances the undoubted attractions of a pleasant anthology.
