"Jean Mouton was routinely compared in his lifetime with Josquin on account of his astonishing compositional technique yet his music is quite distinct. He is able to convey such a spirit of calm and poise that in the whole of Renaissance art it is really only rivalled by the altar-pieces of Giovanni Bellini and Hans Memling."

“an admirably rounded view of Mouton.”
“outstanding realisations of Mouton's wonderful music...clarity is achieved notwithstanding his mathematical methods, and it's a quality that's brought out superbly by the Tallis Scholars and by the excellent recording, providing both sharp focus and a sense of spaciousness and depth.”
Early Music Today
“Jean Mouton deserves more recognition, and in this new recording Peter Phillips puts forward a very strong case. The beauty of the mass belies its cleverness in dissecting and reusing each line of Compère’s original chanson, yet despite such intricate mechanisms, Mouton’s music is as warm and intimate as the performance. The Tallis Scholars sound wonderfully rich in this ‘men’s voice’ scoring and the ‘Agnus Dei II’ for three basses is particularly spectacular...Like all Tallis Scholars’ recordings, this is essential listening.”
