"Singing one person to a part, the Marian Consort give sublimely refined, spacious and impeccably tuned performances."
"The performances are models of discretion and musical taste, every texture clear, every phrase beautifully shaped."
"'performances are always vibrant and perfectly tuned’"
"There is an alluring, sometimes intoxicating equilibrium about this disc, regulated by the pure-toned intimacy and blend of Rory McCleery’s fine ensemble."
"The singers perform with a yearning intensity which is just exquisite."
"Exemplary one-to-a-part performances ... the singing is as impassioned as it is effortlessly elegant."
"This is no-nonsense musicianship, but for all that thoroughly musical ... The unfussy performance helps the music enormously."
"The Marian Consort has built an enviable reputation for coolly poised and precisely balanced performances and indeed there are times here when the listener can only sit back and admire, seduced by the sheer beauty of sound."
"The Marian Consort’s performances deliver full value in terms of expressive range and sophistication. Pitch-perfect tuning and immaculately clean ensemble … add further to the attractions of this eminently listenable recital."
