Review quote

Mundy's two short motets are not too demanding technically, but display a masterly control of vocal and musical resources to match in music the meaning of the texts. The running translations above the score and the performance suggestions in the keyboard reduction point performers to the essential truths of these little masterpieces. * The Organ, March 08 *show more
