Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
There's probably nothing this choir couldn't sing, and spectacularly well. They deliver clean, crisp singing, with perfect intonation and balance. They achieve standards of phrasing, dynamics and interpretive intensity that many fine adult ensembles would kill for. Organist Whitehead handles his magnificent instrument beautifully. All is captured in terrific sound, and we get a classy booklet.
