Penguin Guide, January 2009

Naxos provide an attractive cross-section of Lawes’s instrumental music, using an all-viol texture for the string parts in the Consorts (with organ where appropriate). The group also include a fascinatingly bravura set of Divisions for Viols and Organ on the same Pavane which opens the four-part Sett in G minor. The pieces for two lutes could have been given more lively projection, although they are well enough played. The excellent balance helps to make this inexpensive sampler recommendable, which readers might well try.

American Record Guide, October 1996

"Persons unfamiliar with Lawes's music who desire and introduction should try the Naxos disc, and not only for the budget price. The music-making is at a high level...There are many special moments."

BBC Music Magazine, June 1996

"With their beautifully shaped readings, at once introspective and passionate, the Rose Consort captures this darker side of Lawes perhaps better than any other ensemble"

Early Music Review, April 1996

"an ideal introduction to Lawes' magnificent consort works... Richly rewarding and likely to be one of the bargains of the year"
