"... Well worth having for first modern recordings of some neglected Roman repertoire."
Noel O’Regan - Early Music Review - April 2012
"...I would characterize these performances as highly polished but not stylistically distinctive. While not identified as such, I believe that ll or most of the works on this disc are premiere recordings... Given proficient renderings, that alone is enough to warrant a recommendation for a disc that sheds further light on the music of lesser masters in Italy during the period 1550 to 1750."

"With this 2011 release, Musica Vaticana, Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal, led by its founder Christopher Jackson, solidifies its reputation as one of the very finest choirs specializing in music of the Baroque and Renaissance. Its tone is warmly blended and pure, and it is able to produce a wide range of tonal colors suited to whatever is being performed. Most importantly, the chorus enters fully into the spirit of the music, so its performances are lively and spontaneous-sounding...The elegant, understated continuo part is provided by organ, strings, and harp. Atma’s sound is vivid, with good balance and ambience."
Stephen Eddins - All Music - 1 September 2011
"...The intricacy of the music is entrancing, and this disc is worth savouring multiple times to truly appreciate the craft behind this music."
