Notes & Reviews:

Mark Williams returns with the Choir of Jesus College Cambridge to complete the liturgical year in music from Lent to Trinity with this new collection - a journey begun with their 2012 release 'Journey into Light', which charted Advent, Christmas, Epiphany and Candlemas (SIGCD269). Praise for The Choir of Jesus College Cambridge on Signum: "Under Mark Williams direction, the choirs make a clear elegant and focused sound, and clarity is very much the watchword in the performances." Musicweb Int'l, Nov 2014

MusicWeb International, 1st April 2015
This is a fine recital, which has been planned discerningly and performed with great skill and commitment.

The Telegraph, 22nd February 2015
The programme strays well off the ecclesiastical beaten track...The darkness-to-light format is familiar enough, but the sequence has been carefully thought through here and embraces sufficient variety of styles and texture - some with organ accompaniment, some without - to sustain the disc's 75 minutes.
