Notes & Reviews:

As the centenary of the Great War approaches, the choir of Jesus College Cambridge presents a new program of works titled War & Peace, a beautiful and moving collection of choral works that are united in various ways by the experiences and impact of war.

The Observer, 12th January 2014
First into the centenary field is this fine choral compilation that manages to evoke a sombre mood of commemoration while avoiding sentimentality.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2014
The Jesus singers give a glowing account in this rewarding programme. Supple, sensitive direction by Mark Williams.
