Notes & Reviews:

The Rodolfus Choir mark both Benjamin Britten's centenary year and the 30th anniversary of the choir's first concert with this new program of works by both composers. The disc includes the premiere recording of Paul Mealor's Praise that was commissioned especially for the Rodolfus Choir.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
The singing is attractive, expressive, and possessed of all the youthful ardor you could want. The engineering is fine and texts are supplied.
