(Taverner) “greatest English composer of the reign of Henry VIII, which saw the last fine flowering of our insular school of vocal polyphony…This alone would be enough to make me urge you to buy the record….almost all the works on this disc are great music presented with all the finesse for which the King’s choir is famous.” (Gibbons) “It is appropriate that the choir of King’s should be involved in recording Gibbons’s church music, for he was a chorister there in the last years of the 16th century….I can go on to praise the disc as a whole very highly indeed.” (Gramophone)
