“The Gesualdo Six and Owain Park are just incredible at this ingenious programming, melding renaissance polyphony with contemporary choral music … it’s a very classy way to look at music by female composers that people might not know… blend and intonation really are [impeccable]… you can tell this is a group that work together almost constantly, they know each other’s voices so well.” BBC Radio 3 Record Review
