Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, April 2015
Peter Philips's Ascendit Deus is splendidly bright and vigorous...Nico Muhly's Let all the world, quite unlike the RVW setting, is gentle, almost contemplative; Giles Swayne's God is gone up offers another surprise with its quiet ending. These and the well-known Elgar and Finzi pieces are all beautifully performed by this accomplished choir. Let's hope an Easter disc is on its way.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2015
The famous setting of Ascendit Deus but Peter Philips spurts forward like a colt sprung freshly from a stable, the vocal decorations spinning vertiginously round like Monteverdi. It's a bracing opening salvo...Amid the muscular Christianity there are welcome oases of reflection. Conductor Graham Ross's Ascendo ad Patrem meum is one of them.

Ascension and Pentecost are among the chief feasts of the Christian year. On Ascendit Deus, the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge and The Dmitri Ensemble, both led by Graham Ross, explore the rich imagery of musical settings that span five centuries, including five world première recordings. This is the fourth album by the choir dedicated to the major periods of the Christian church calendar.

MusicWeb International, 3rd April 2015
This is another very fine and varied album from Clare College. The singing is consistently superb in every respect throughout a demanding programme.

The Classical Reviewer, April 2015
This is a very fine choral disc that will bring enjoyment not just at Ascensiontide and Pentecost but throughout the year. The recordings from three different venues all add a spaciousness and breadth with producer and engineer, John Rutter, knowing just what to achieve with a choral sound. There is a beautifully produced booklet that includes colour photographs of various pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows.
