Notes & Reviews:

The Observer, 7th September 2014
These heartfelt works are ideally suited to the open, expressive richness of the St John's, Cambridge choir. A Sad Pavan for these distracted times" is one of three pieces played by organ scholar Freddie James - a name to watch.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2014
Truly sumptuous. Although the standout solos sound as young as you would expect from a group of undergraduates, corporately there is the strongly identifiable John's sound of adult professional choir in microcosm. The John's acoustics, too, are particularly good for this music because they buoy up, warm and upholster the sound of the choir.

The Choir of St John's College, Cambridge have been a cornerstone of the great English choral tradition since the 1670s. Here, under their director Andrew Nethsingha, they perform sacred choral works by Thomas Tomkins (1572-1656), a pupil of William Byrd and one of the most accomplished and versatile English composers of his era.
