John Sheppard - Musicweb-international.com - 31 March 2011


"...it’s hard to resist Monteverdi’a luscious soundworld ... The Choir of the Enlightenment sings with the light freshness and clarity which have now come to be firmly associated with Baroque performances ..."   ****

Warwick Thompson - Classic FM Music Magazine May 2011


"... a shimmering, captivating choral sound that seems to float effortlessly through the psalms."  *****
