Description:

"WHEREAS most of our recordings have been designed around a particular composer or collection of music, this disc is content simply to offer The Hilliard Ensemble 'in recital', and presents a mixed programme of early vocal music - including many of the group's favourite pieces."


Reviews:

'Something no lover of early music or admirer of this group should miss' (American Record Guide)

'Music making of the highest order. Everything shows them at their superb best'
(Gramophone)

'Superbly engineered' (Classic CD)
