Brian Morton - Choir & Organ magazine - November/December 2018
"... Even in a smaller space, Tenebrae always sound rich and resonant, and they carry the choral pieces here with absolute control and authority. It's a big listen, but a compelling one and RVW's An Oxford Elegy - one of whose dead was, of course Gurney - is genuinely moving." ****

This CD is a worthy addition to David Goode's Bach series, recorded  on a fine moder organ... Goode has an unerring instinct for exactly the right tempi, and his interpretations are always thoroughly musical and interesting. George Parsons writes scholarly programme notes ..." *****

Thomas Dunne - Brass Band World magazine - November 2018
"... it is evident, from the quality of Richard Gowers's interpretation of La Nativité du Seigneur that this artist joins the ranks of the finest Messiaen interpreters, carrying his music on for future generations. This recording, of such technical quality as to be impossible to criticise, enshrines very fine realisations of this incomparable masterpiece... This disc, in any format, deserves a place in any record collection; at the low price, it is also a remarkable bargain." *****

Rebecca Tavener - Classical Music magazine - December 2018
"...Accomplished performances bring Schelle's rare stuff from c.1680 to festive life with sprightly voices supported by the brass of Concerto Palatino. A generation later, the equally obscure Graun shines with inventive choruses, graceful solo numbers and colourful orchestration in 80 magical minutes of elegant celebration."
