More about this release

I enjoy the vividly recorded performances by the choir of St John's College, Cambridge, of Byrd's Masses in Four and Five Parts

Edward Greenfield 'Records of the Year', The Guardian (11th December 1987)

With vividly atmospheric sound the robust warmth of George Guest's readings with his Choir of St John's College, Cambridge, will delight many more than early-music fanciers
