"... Bernhard Klapprott conducts ably, and his instrumental and choral forces perform with precision and vigor. Everything is well recorded ... This is an unexpectedly treasurable find, which lovers of Baroque sacred music should add to their colections forthwith; strongly recommended."

"... Given that there are a dozen recommendable recordings of the two Janácek quartets, I'd say that the Belcea disc stands out in particular for the Ligeti. This isn't to detract from their Janácek performances, which are the product of a long-standing ensemble I consider highly musical and always worth hearing."

"... Violinist Wolfgang David is in complete sympathy with the music. His technique is remarkable and his attention to detail is outstanding. Equally outstanding are the performances by cellist Hannah Holman and pianist Réne Lecuona. Holman's intonation is consistently excellent. Lecuona seems to lavish well-considered planning to every note she plays. Her control of the keyboard is amazing. The playing of both musicians demonstrates first-rate musicianship. It is rare to encounter double bass playing of both musicians demonstrates first-rate musicianship. it is rare to encounter double bass playing of both musicians demonstrates first-rate musician. It is rare to encounter double bass playing on the level Volkan Orhon. He brings a level of virtuosity, technique and expression one is used to finding in an accomplished violinist. This is fantastic playing. Gompper demonstrates that he has great facility at the keyboard. he is a very good player. Credit goes to engineer James Edel for providing excellent sound."

"... His [Beier] new Dowland disc is recorded beautifully, ideally bringing out the crisp clarity of his playing... Every note is clearly stated, and yet there is variety in his touch. He can make a single note ring regally against the flurries that follow. He seems in total control. His use of dynamics is subtle, his lyric sense finally tuned. This is, therefore, a valuable, mostly lovely addition to the catalog of Dowland recordings ..."
