'The volume offers a useful adjunct to the hymnal and will certainly enrich congregational singing; equally, for church choirs looking to refresh their hymn singing, Baldwin's descants will be welcomed. Throughout, OUP's high production standards are in evidence.' Choir & Organ, November/December 07
