In Stereophile magazine, Wes Phillips wrote:

That sense of scale and deep immersion in the acoustic was also evident in "Linden Lea," from the all-women chamber vocal group Angelica's The Beautiful Treasure: Songs from Near & Far (CD, Angelica). Recorded in the South Presbyterian Church at Dobbs Ferry, New York, by Len Moskowitz, the singers are placed deep in the acoustic--and through the CTH-8550, very deep. On "Over the Hills," the chorus is joined by hurdy-gurdy and hand drums, and the differences in scale were extremely well delineated by the darTZeel. Then there was the setting of Loreena McKennitt's "Tango to Evora," which again adds the hand drum plus a guitar and sets soprano Melanie Anderson against a gentle wash of harmonies. It's a quiet song, and a very passionate one. The CTH-8550 preserved all of that while giving me intense goose bumps. Analytic it may be, but cold? Not hardly! (If you're a fan of John Atkinson's recordings of Cantus, you should just go ahead and buy Len Moskowitz's Angelica discs.)
