Notes & Reviews:

The Choirs of the Cathedral of St. John, Albuquerque perform music for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The main Cathedral Choir and the chamber group drawn from its ranks are first-rate ensembles, as American church choirs go; very little, if anything, in the way of mainstream sacred music is beyond their capabilities. The young Cathedral Choristers (mostly girls) are very sweet-sounding and secure. We get well-tailored sound, particularly for the organ pieces - always an engineering challenge. The booklet has succinct notes, complete texts, and translations.
