'a Tremendous new recording' BBC Radio 3 CD Review

'The choral singing, from Tenebrae, is jaw-droppingly beautiful'
The Guardian, 14 December 2007

'... I would add the unflagging energy of the choral singing and its phenomenal accuracy: the members of Tenebrae ... are clearly all top musical athletes.' International Record Review, December 2007

'this one [recording[ definitely belongs in the hall of fame ... The musicality in this set is terrific, the Tenebrae Choir a marvel to behold, and the LSO playing like they never have. The soloists are outstanding. The DVD is a bonus, with eleven numbers from the concert performance, plus an interview with Davis ... This is a marvelous set by a man who knows the work perhaps better than anyone, and can get to the heart and soul of Handel's celebrated score. Bravo!' Audiophile Audition, November 2007
