"...Worthy and committed performances." ****

Timothy Bell - Classic CD - November 1999
 


"The opening of this disc was quite a shock, as I wasn’t expecting to hear an organ with such a French sound and phrase freedom. The first few bars are positively boiling. Jeremy Filsell’s playing throughout is masterly too...
The motets and the Mass alike on this disc are well worth hearing (just try Laudes organi on the first track or the glorious Pange lingua on track three) and especially in performances of this stature – the choir is splendid (and it is a measure of the care taken in producing this recording that the singers have been specially coached to sing in Hungarian). Even if the choral singing was not on the highest level of technique, colour and drama, which it certainly is (just listen to the wonderfully atmospheric Kyrie of the Mass), the disc would be worth buying for the organ alone, so don’t hesitate!..."

Roger Fisher - Organist’s Review - February 2000


"You’ll not hear Laudes Organi and Pange Lingua, the two big works with organ accompaniment, sound better than they do here. Very powerful! (Superb organ playing doesn’t hurt the cause, either.)..."

Greenfield - American Record Guide - March/April 2000


"This recording of music by the Hungarian composer Kodály is the first time I have had the pleasure of hearing the Vasari Singers. And a pleasure it has most definitely been. ..The vibrant Latin text provides much opportunity for vocal word painting, sometimes perhaps a little obvious, but nevertheless charming. The choir is at its best, though, in the unaccompanied pieces, Evening Song and Evening. These beautiful little gems, with their close harmony and evocation of day yielding to peaceful night are, for me, the highlights of this immensely enjoyable recording."

Ian Colson -  Cathedral Music - January 2000
