Notes & Reviews:

A celebratory 2-CD set from Collegium Records, highlighting 30 years of the Cambridge Singers, and the 70th Birthday of John Rutter

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Performances, while drawn from recordings dating back as far as three decades, are uniformly excellent, revealing a sweet-toned and clear-voiced choir whose sound and style have changed very little all the while. Orchestral accompaniments are flawless, and the quality of recorded sound is quite consistent. So here's a hearty thank-you and a happy anniversary wish to both the Cambridge Singers and Collegium - as well as to the cherished choral maestro who gave birth to both.
