“ … a standout within the crowded field of Bay Area early music ensembles.” - San Francisco Classical Voice (July 28, 2009)
"The SFRV performs [these] classics from the golden age of European polyphony the way they were meant to be heard: large ensemble voices lifting the soul for sacred moments. Living history doesn't get any better." - SFWeekly, selecting us as their 2010 pick for "Best Classical Music" (Summer 2010)
"One could not have asked for a more entertaining spectacle ... a tour de force." - San Francisco Examiner (June 2013)
“… A wonderful performance of Ordo Virtutum. I absolutely loved it!” - HealthyHildegard.com (July 2017) of our remount of Hildegard's masterpiece
“SFRV brought a transparency to all of the vocal selections, the words of all the selections were clear. This was clearly a sincere account of music that was frequently rich in its embellishing figures and SFRV came through with a stimulating journey of sources that are, for the most part, unfamiliar to most listeners.” - The Rehearsal Studio (August 2019)
