And for the ensemble:

Even if we weren't aware of the liturgical and textual connections among these sacred motets by some of the most illustrious composers of the Renaissance, as listeners we would be immensely satisfied with the first-rate performances and uniformly gorgeous music. Stile Antico... represents the future of serious, unhyped, technically polished, stylistically attuned, and musically affecting choral performance. This program and the first-rate performances should not be missed by anyone who loves Renaissance choral music. Highly recommended. (David Vernier, Classics Today).
