“Ginastera’s Lamentations of Jeremiah, the first and longest item, is also the most exciting and is brilliantly performed...the predominant quieter music has a glow that complements the singers’ sensitivity...Outstanding among those are Jesús Guridi’s hymn-like Tantum ergo and vivid, Widor-meets-Saint-Saëns Final for organ”
“This is another first-class anthology of practically unknown choral music from Coro Cervantes...It is not going too far, I think, to say that Ginastera’s turbulent but masterly work is the highlight of the disc.”

“The performances are admirable for their clarity and accuracy; the choir is spot on musically in all this new music...The interesting disc opens a window on an entirely different musico-liturgical tradition.”
“Carlos Fernandez Aransay has been able to assemble a fascinating programme of music in varied styles and of uniformly high quality...I recommend this recording without reservation: it is of unusual interest, and performances are excellent throughout.”
