It was named one of the Editor's Choice CDs in the November 2009 issue of Gramophone magazine. In his review, David Fallows called it a "remarkable repertory presented with flair and flawless musicianship" and especially commended the "marvellously clean voices" of the "excellent" Carmina Chamber Choir.

"And the entire collection is a triumph." The Carmina Chamber Choir has performed at music festivals in Stockholm, Paris, and London. Its concert at the Spitalfields Music Festival received a 4-star review in The Times; critic Hilary Finch described the performance as "beautifully blended, and sung with disarming simplicity and grace." Its swcon CD, containing songs from the Icelandic 18th-century manuscript Hymnodia sacra, was released in 2010 and won the Icelandic Music Awards for Best Classical CD in 2011. Classic FM magazine gave the release a 4-star review: "They know how this music should sound and everything is exceptionally and attractively pure, though spiced with the bouncy, curvaceous lilt of the Icelandic language and accent. No qualms with vocal tone or intonation either, and the recorded sound is exceptional." Read more on Last.fm.
