“A voyage of faith for the 21st century… An ensemble at the peak of their powers, making vital statements about the world…”
– Seen & Heard International

“Sumptuous and exuberant… the playing is gutsy and colourful. Who’d have though this would be such a hit?”
– The Scotsman, Edinburgh, UK (5-star review)

“Fascinating… magnificently performed… sophisticated arrangements at a high level. This CD is a real treasure.”
– Pizzicato Magazine, LUXEMBOURG

A rich musical portrait of the Old City… extraordinarily varied in mood. Sometimes rumbustious, sometimes riven with tragedy. Sorrell is one of those idealistic souls like Jordi Savall who use their music-making to suggest that despite political and religious enmities, the peoples of East and West can find common ground in music… perhaps even learn to live together. Listening to this wonderful, inspiring CD one could almost believe it.”
– The Daily Telegraph (London)

“The U.S.A.’s hottest baroque band.” –CLASSICAL MUSIC MAGAZINE (UK)
