Robert Delcamp
American Record Guide, March 2017

This marvelous music is mystical, ecstatic, joyous. One wishes to hear it as part of a real celebration of the Eucharist. The movements are unified by a motive in the tradition of Renaissance Mass settings—a rising fifth followed by a rising melisma—infusing them with a sense of yearning. A climax is reached in the Sanctus that combines the motive, contrapuntal rigor, and virtuosic organ flourishes to create an atmosphere of choral ecstasy. Fine choir in fine performances. © 2017 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Marc Rochester
MusicWeb International, November 2016

…this is deeply affecting and moving music, once again powerfully delivered by these committed and accomplished performers.

…this is a very impressive performance indeed and one which makes a worthy addition to the catalogue… Many will be drawn to this simply because of the polish and intensity Taylor brings to his readings, and the way his choir responds with such potent empathy for the music. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review
