★★★★★ The King’s Singers bring this great monument of Italian music history to striding life – Sinfini Music

★★★★★ The King’s Singers are on top form, singing with a sunny freshness appropriate to this happy music, blending beautifully, and moving as one into crescendos and decrescendos, ranging in dynamic from a whispering pianissimo to declamatory episodes of high drama – Early Music Review

It is hard to imagine a group with greater potential to do justice to this music of love and mythology than they – Gramophone

The King’s Singers turn out their characteristic, highly polished finish: diction is razor-sharp, ensemble and intonation are well-nigh flawless – BBC Music Magazine

A masterclass in delicate phrasing, elegant lines, exemplary Italian and effortless madrigalian expression with standards of intonation to languish after…delizioso – Choir & Organ

If you have to make a single choice The King’s Singers will appeal more and it’s also beautifully recorded in a venue, which is at least new to this reviewer – Music Web International
