“Anthony Rooley’s Consort in repertoire they do so well….This anthology might carry the subtitle of ‘Weelkes’ Greatest Hits’: from Thule to When David heard, the best-known pieces are all here, and there is no better-rounded overview of his music than this : familiar ideas and topics recur in different pieces…(Their) lighter touch has considerable charm…in the madrigals and canzonets such as As Vesta was or Harke all ye lovely Saints, and in the songs of mourning they find many affecting touches….all in all it is a pleasure to welcome…” (Gramophone)
