"... But for my disc of the year I turn to an enchanting collection of rare Spanish sacred choral music exquisitely performed by Coro Cervantes under Carlos Fernández Aransay, the title of the disc being drawn from a lovely song by Fernando Sor, O Crux.

Mark Rochester - Gramophone - December 2002
 


"Finally, a disc that slipped in by accident. The cover of “O Crux” suggests a programme of Spanish choral music from the age of Victoria. But no, it’s actually a series of world première recordings of mostly a cappella sacred music written in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Albéniz, Granados, Manuel de Falla and Fernando Sor as we have never heard them before: caught up in the mystery of religion and drawing imaginatively, and often very audibly, on the styles of their illustrious ancestors. Coro Cervantes richly convey the intensity and excitement of the discovery."

International Record Review - 12 February 2002


"...Polished and beautifully precise as their singing is, there is no escaping the fact that Coro Cervantes is a British choir, nor that the smooth-toned organ and warm and comfortable acoustic, so admirably captured in this lovely recording, belong to an Oxford College (Exeter) rather than a Spanish cathedral. But for all their Anglican overtones, these singers, under the clearly-focused direction of the utterly Spanish Carlos Aransay, reveal this to be music of far more than mere curiosity value; this is a disc to enjoy on many levels."

Marc Rochester - Gramophone - October 2002
