Lauda Sion is, in Pro Cantione Antiqua's sober and elegant account, hardly less beautiful than the Brevis...slightly plangent countertenor complements the minor inflexions of this major-mode work….but there is nothing tentative in the delivery. The final Agnus is especially beautiful with its added voice in the middle. Further recordings of this work are unlikely to displace this all-male, solo-voice approach... The plainchant relevant to each Mass is beautifully rendered and unobtrusive, and the recording has a full presence whilst not too close.” - Gramophone
