Review (by Stuart Maconie in NME 26 January 1991

Few Northside fans will be set alight by I Fagiolini's rendition of Monteverdi's secular works which is a pity, since its clean, elegant lines are infinitely preferable for chilling out to than Ambient House or that crap Enigma single. I wouldn't know a good Monteverdi from a Swans B-side but it sounds terrific to me. (7)

The numbers after each track title refers to the Monteverdi music 'Book' it is taken from.
