Notes & Reviews:

"It goes without saying that the performances are absolutely authentic: The English choral sound is permanently domiciled in The Choir of St. Paul's...and they present these 14 anthems - their daily sustenance, as natural as our early-morning coffee - with fluency and obvious commitment...The hugeness of [St. Paul's is] wonderfully captured by Hyperion's engineers...Anything less than an enthusiastic recommendation would be churlish." -Anderson, Fanfare

'All of the music is of the very highest quality. This disc will offer lasting pleasure and satisfaction to cathedral music enthusiasts and newcomers alike' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Rewarding indeed' (Classic FM Magazine)
