'Supersonic Award from Pizzicato January 2013'
'...a lovely work, part of a well crafted sequence...it's a beautiful recorded sound...' BBC Radio 3 - CD Review
'The programme is as comforting and pleasing to the intellect as the music is the soul.' International Record Review
Magnificat's recording offers an exploration into the choral works of three of Tudor England's most compelling composers: Robert Parsons, Robert White and William Byrd. As with previous Magnificat collections, years of meticulous study and consideration has gone into this recording; it represents the fruits of their personal journey through the works and history of these composers. Magnificat has received many plaudits for the sensitivity and expressiveness of its performances, and this programme provides a wonderful opportunity to engage with music that is both challenging and rewarding to performers and listeners alike.
