"The Gloriae Dei Cantores recording is similarly excellent. I've had the pleasure of listening to and reviewing several of this group's discs, and found the performances uniformly superb, technically and artistically. This one is no exception. Indeed, Brahms and Mendelssohn's motets are ideally suited to the size and color of the ensemble. I doubt, for instance, that Brahms himself...could have imagined a more perfect performance of his wonderful set of choral variations of the chorale, O Heiland reiss. Balance, ensemble, and intonation are perfect as one has come to expect of the Cantores. Enough with superlatives; add this disc to your collection."
—John Ogasapian, The American Organist

"This well-filled disc of Romantic music...focuses on less familiar pieces. The singing is generally on a high level and the organ of Mechanics Hall in Worcester is impressive in the accompaniments...As a broad overview of the music of this era, the disc provides a generous sampling."
—J. F. Weber, Fanfare

"The Gloriae Dei Cantores...sing with excellent intonation, particularly in Brahms' chromatic passages. Their rich legato style, combined with fine choral blend and ensemble, is very appealing for music of this period....This is very fine work, a tribute to American choral singing."
—Paul Althouse, American Record Guide
