Penguin Guide, January 2009

The Oxford Camerata with their beautifully blended timbre have their own way with Tallis. Lines are firm, the singing has serenity but also a firm pulse. In the Mass (and particularly in the Sanctus) the expressive strength is quite strongly communicated, while the Benedictus moves on spontaneously at the close. The motets respond particularly well to Jeremy Summerly’s degree of intensity. The opening Loquebantur variis linguis has much passionate feeling, and this (together with the Audivi vocem and, especially, the lovely Sancte Deus) shows this choir of a dozen singers at their most eloquent. The recording, made in the Chapel of Wellington College, is very fine indeed. Excellent value.

American Record Guide

"Ensemble and intonation are excellent - especially important in an idiom like the English Tudor."

BBC Music Magazine

"another success for Jeremy Summerly's Oxford Camerata"

Classical Express

"Another treasure that should sooner or later find its way into every collection. So why not sooner?"
