Penguin Guide, January 2009

Of the two performances here, Jeremy Summerly’s account is undoubtedly the more eloquently serene; it is beautifully controlled and modulated, rather after the fashion of the famous Willcocks/King’s College accounts of the Byrd Masses. The harmonic pungencies are cleanly presented but unexaggerated and—compared with Hillier—the music’s lines, although by no means bland, flow in relative tranquility. The singers apparently experimented freely with plicas (notational signs indicating some kind of ornament).

Ted Libbey
Early Music America, July 2001

"This is the closest anyone has yet come to recording Machaut's setting as he himself might have heard it; the coupling is a sampling of songs from Le Voir Dit, another intriguingly autobiographical offering."
