"...lyrical, musical intelligent and poised."

Marco Bizzarini - Musica magazine - July/August 2012
"... Vol 2 covers the most modern and old-fashioned compositions the elderly Monteverdi selected. Twenty singers join together in a shapely performance of an a cappella four-part Mass in the stile antico, whereas elaborate concertato psalms such as ’Confitebor tibi Domine (promo)’ are sung by just eight singers, with high tenors sailing smoothly on the alto lines; choral refrains are supple, solos are sung eloquently and the Latin texts are communicated crisply..."
David Vickers - Gramophone magazine - August 2012
"This is another fine volume in the Sixteen’s survey of the Selva morale e spirituale ... There is a sense of a deep familiarity with the music in this recording, a feeling of easiness with Monteverdi’s harmonic and, especially, rhythmic volcabulary that lends a tripping lightness to the performances ... the acoustics of St Silas the Martyr in Kentish Town seem to be absolutely right for this ravishing music."
