Notes & Reviews:

These are lovely musical performances, chosen from 3 recordings at Jesus College, demonstrating the first class quality this choral centre has always maintained, whether alone or supplementing other choirs such as King's in large scale works. It serves as a base from which careers are launched, because of its standards. Featured, in perfect harmonies, is a wide variety of pieces, from Renaissance to modern, with either the full choir or Men & Boys.
