"The unique counter-tenor voice of Russell Oberlin is heard here to maximum advantage in the songs of William Byrd. Originally issued on LP on the Experiences Anonymes label in 1958, this CD is immaculately remastered. It is of comparitively short measure (48 min.) but in every other respect this is a superb disc. Oberlin's voice is like a fine wine: once tried, nothing else seems quite the same. The accompaniments by Joseph Iadone are admirably stylish, and he has two lute solos to provide central interludes for each group of six songs and a third to act as a postlude."
