La Folia, May 2016

…these dewy-eyed antiqued choruses will satisfy the Silvestrov devotee seeking true balm. © 2016 La Folia Read complete review

Tony Way
Limelight, February 2016

Silvestrov could not have better advocates than the Latvian Radio Choir who sing with empathy and impeccable intonation (absolutely essential in this highly chromatic music), all given an acoustic halo by the cavernous reverberation of St. John’s Church, Riga. © 2016 Limelight Magazine Read complete review

Brian Burtt
MusicWeb International, February 2016

The mood here is all of one piece: quiet and deeply meditative. If you seek such musical comfort, this disc will satisfy.

The Latvian Radio Choir, its director Sigvards Kļava, and the team of soloists make a beautiful sound. There’s nothing to disappoint in their and the engineers’ realization of Silvestrov’s vision. © 2016 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Malcolm Riley
Gramophone, October 2015

An absorbing, immersive choral experience for both the singers, one confidently assumes, and certainly for the listener, from an impressive choir. © 2015 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
