‘Fascinating … the most interesting and enterprising brass collection I have yet encountered … first rate, and very realistic recording … the brass playing throughout is vividly expert and the recording is splendidly real’ (Gramophone)


‘From the very opening track the London Gabrieli Brass Ensemble demands close attention. All say something that makes you want to listen’ (BBC Music Magazine)
‘A real gem of a disc. The performances are excellent … This was both an education and an entertainment’ (Classic CD)


‘Performances are ideal. The British have given us a thoroughly American disc of extraordinary beauty; for which, many thanks!’ (Fanfare, USA)
