“Wonderfully blended string tone and, in the Requiem, an ethereally silver sound. The chorus is superb, singing with apt weight yet moving with agility…This disc provides excellent advocacy for two of Biber’s stellar choral works.”Steve Holtje, Early Music America

“McCreesh and his musicians reinforce the expression of joy and grief in this programme . . . much to Biber’s advantage.”Classic FM

“Paul McCreesh and his Gabrieli Consort are the masters of baroque ceremony.”Colin Anderson, What’s On
