"...I was totally unprepared for the range and visionary quality of his a cappella output....  This disc is an essential acquisition for anyone interested in Villa-Lobos, and an unreserved recommendation for anyone with half-way open ears." - Guy Rickards, Tempo, New Series, No. 186 (Sep., 1993), pp. 48-49
