« On retrouve ici, comme dans la plupart des enregistrements récents consacrés à la musique anglais des 16ème et 17ème siècles, ce son lisse et pur .. contrairement à certains ensembles, les William Byrd ont su rendre aussi le caractère dramatique de la musique de Gibbons, où l’émotion n’est jamais absente. Dans les pièces religieuses comme dans les profanes, Gibbons a su mieux que la plupart de ses contemporains donner un tour dramatique très moderne à sa musique. Cet aspect est parfaitement compris et restitué. Apparemment ce disque est le premier d’une série sur la musique anglaise du 17ème siècle. Si la suite est d’un égal intérêt, nous aurons là une indispensable encyclopédie. »
Jacques Bonnaure, Répertoire

“We find on this CD, as on most recent recordings of English music of the 16th and 17th centuries, the pure bell-like sound of the trebles … Unlike some ensembles, the William Byrds here show the dramatic character of Gibbons’ music, where emotion is never absent. In religious pieces as well as secular ones, Gibbons was able to give a very modern dramatic twist to his music; and this aspect is perfectly understood and transmitted. Apparently this disc will be the first of a series devoted to 17th century English music. If the ones that follow are as good as this one, we will have in them an indispensable encyclopaedia.”
