Notes & Reviews:
Admirable performances and recording. Louis Halsey's choir, with its almost boy-like sopranos, is just right for these motets, while the recording sets them resonantly, as if in a cathedral. The choir sings its magnificently singable lines with evident appreciation of their moving beauty, obviously inspired by Halsey, whose heart is in the music.
Louis Halsey is obviously much in sympathy with both composers and gets most responsive singing from his choir, with excellent diction.
Halsey has helped to set a new standard in such choral singing, one of the splendid bonuses of the King's tradition, from which Halsey stems. Recording first-rate as one would expect from Argo.
