Notes & Reviews:

"The sacred choral music in this collection is all elegiac or meditative...These are superb performances, and quite frankly, the New College Choir has never sounded better. The alto, tenor, and bass sections have been augmented for a richer choral texture. The blend of voices is ravishing...Finally, this disc is a model of how choral music should be recorded. The engineers have achieved a near-perfect mix of presence and space...Bravos all around!" -Gatens, ARG
