Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
The four male members of New York Polyphony... are the core performers, augmented as necessary by a trio of female voices, the crystalline purity of the soprano contribution to Kenneth Leighton's setting of the famous 'Coventry Carol' being particularly affecting. They sing most alluringly, superior technique a given but never flaunted, the focus squarely on communicating the deeply emotional wellsprings of much of this music.
