Notes & Reviews:

This wide-ranging program offers connections and contrasts in music of devotion and consolation. The settings by life-long friends Holst and Vaughan Williams, whilst very different, are highly affecting. The music of Rachmaninov, whose hymn derives from his 1915 All-Night Vigil, and John Tavener is immersed in the ritual of the Russian Orthodox Church. Marian Prayers come from Pierre Villette and Knut Nystedt. The music that gives its name to the title of the disc is the beautiful 'conversation' of Roxanna Panufnik. Founded by conductor and composer David Ogden in 2002 to sing a live broadcast on BBC Radio, Exultate Singers has gone on to give over 120 concerts, broadcasts and other appearances in the United Kingdom, Poland, the Czech Republic, Germany and Spain. The choir has given several broadcasts on BBC Radio and has appeared on BBC television's Songs of Praise and The One Show.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
The works incorporating Richard May's sonorous cello playing are of particular interest. Knut Nystedt's 15-minute Stabat Mater is an emotionally rich treatment of that familiar medieval text, with the cello adding both passion and compassion to the Virgin's ordeal at the foot of the cross. I also can recommend Roxanne Panufnik's churning but comforting 'All Shall Be Well', a work dedicated to her father, the composer.
