[Symphony] “my ultimate recommendation goes not to Nonesuch’s success, but to the moving recording on Koch Schwann – this is heartfelt music-making, pure and simple, that succeeds admirably in conveying the sorrow of these aptly named songs. Koch also provide better value money with their inclusion of the very approachable Three Pieces in Old Style” [Totus tuus] “It’s a simple, fetching, unaccompanied motet, written for Pope John Paul’s visit to Poland” (Gramophone)
