"Within the ideal acoustics of Merton College Chapel, Oxford, the Tallis Scholars give a thrilling account of the famous 40-part motet, Spem in alium, in which the astonishingly complex polyphony is spaciously separated over a number of point sorces, yet blending as a satisfying whole to reach a massive climax. The breath and depth of sound are spectacular."
-Rosette (Highest Rating) - Penguin Stereo Guide

"The Tallis Scholars produce a distilled, transparent sound and the spiritual tone of their performance is one of serene contemplation through which the Requiem's ecstatic 'external light' shines." (BBC MUSIC Five Stars)
