"Their concert, captured in this single 43 minute track, has an otherworldly quality. Not so much spiritual, as supernatural, with Gärdin's saxophone taking flight with the sound of bird calls, and Pinheiro's organ resounding like the wind carving out caverns. The addition of Lopes' turntable isn't so much sampling as it is percussive and a drone generator. The entire performance is not unlike a futuristic arboretum or sanctuary for robots. A dream Philip K. Dick once had. Highly recommended." ****
Mark Corroto, All About Jazz

"In handen van Gärdin, Lopes en Pinheiro is de ongebruikelijke combinatie van saxofoon, kerkorgel en draaitafel-percussie zeker geen gimmick. De Portugezen en Zweed beproeven de mogelijkheden van de instrumenten individueel en van het samenspel in deze bezetting. Dat leidt tot een lange, veelzijdige improvisatie die meer doet dan bewondering wekken. De muziek werkt ook op het gevoel, straalt een zekere melancholie maar ook levenslust uit. History of The Lisbon Chaplaincy is dus niet alleen een interessante vrije improvisatieplaat, maar ook een hele mooie."
Gert Derkx, Opduvel

"Heavy, dense, obscure, mysterious, this is not a black version of the white mass, but something else. The spiritual dimension of the disc is not necessarily less - what we hear also invites us to meditation and introspection..." *****
Rui Eduardo Paes, Jazz .pt
