The singing of the Oxford Camerata is superb, confidently ptiched and blended, and Jeremy Summerly's pacing is as naturally spontaneous as it is perceptive.

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Jeremy Summerly and his Oxford Camerata gives a powerfully expressive and wholly convincing account of Dufay’s masterly cyclic Mass using a Burgundian chanson as its basis. We hear this sung first in its original format as an introduction, and its message, ‘The armed man should be feared’, makes a dramatically appropriate contrast with the motet, Supremum est mortalibus, which is a peace song. The latter was written some 30 years earlier, yet it shows just as readily the remarkable inventiveness and eloquence of this 15th-century French composer. The Mass movements are interspersed with plainchant in the same Dorian mode. With vivid yet atmospheres recording this can be given the strongest recommendations.
