Well conceived program and these are the most beautiful performances of all 4 pieces.
Penguin Guide

The performances are compelling in their intimate simplicity - the size of the group in modest - and the recording, without loss of ambience provides exceptionally clear internal definition of the part-writing...The recording certainly does not lack atmosphere and the result is uncommonly fresh: one finds oneself rediscovering the music's detail with new ears.

The singing itself is superb, the group includes many distinguished singers and the impact of the performances is enhanced by the sound.
