John Duarte, writing in Gramophone, January 2000, in the end of year "Critics’ choice" section, in which three CDs featuring Jacob Heringman were chosen as among the best classical CDs of 1999:

"Anthony Holborne has had a good year. Jacob Heringman, aided by Susanna Pell’s bass viol, reveals the variety of his music for lute, cittern and bandora in a beautifully played programme. . . . Jacob Heringman (again) is the sympathetic partner of Catherine King in a cross-section of Dowland’s lute songs, and of other instrumentalists in reduced consort versions of some items, as well as a ‘varietie’ of lute solos."

Lindsay Kemp, same issue, same section, writes:

"Two vocal recordings brought considerable pleasure: . . . a disc of seventeenth-century airs de cour from Catherine King, Charles Daniels and Jacob Heringman, though not hugely profound, was a real charmer."
