Notes & Reviews:

'This beautifully made record deserves the widest circulation. The sound these choirs make is of great beauty, and is captured in a flawless recording full of atmosphere and warmth' (The Monthly Guide to Recorded Music)

'Reflects great credit on all concerned' (Gramophone)

'Excellent in every aspect. The presence is breathtaking, the singing of both soloists and choir are quite superb, and the accompaniment by the organist, Thomas Trotter, contributes so much although at times it is barely there, just the faintest rumble. Getting all this on to tape so artistically is most creditable. Britten would have loved it. I did.' (Gramophone)
