. . . this is an essential disc for both the curious and the committed, underpinned by superb musicianship, and boasting the thrill of the new -- and the old.

. . . this set, which still sounds gorgeous on its own terms, will always hold a place, and anyone who doesn't have it yet should grab it without further ado . . . don't pass up this landmark in medieval recording.

L'interprétation de la musique médiévale a une histoire, et un mythe fondateur : LE disque qui projeta ce répertoire hors des cénacles musicologiques, fin 1975 . . . Depuis, cet enregistrement a été une révélation pour d'innombrables mélomanes, musiciens et musicologues, connaisseurs ou non du Moyen Ages, ne serait-ce qu'à travers sa réédition CD de 1985 . . . Côté estéthique . . . est tempéré par une intelligence et un goût musical qui semblent intemporales . . . Trente-neuf bijoux, un disque de chevet.

. . . d'une intelligence et d'un goût musical intemporels. Le choc vint en partie de la beauté des organa de Notre-Dame (Paul Elliott dans "Gaude Virgo" ou l'hallucinant trémolo vocal du "Sederunt"), mais l'élégance des miniatures du XIIIe siècle ("S'on me regarde") et la maîtrise des motets de Machaut ("Lasse! comment oublieray", l'une des plus belles plages de toute la discographie) ne sont pas moins fascinante.
