Notes & Reviews:

In memory of the faithful departed, Graham Ross directs the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge in a program of English and Spanish music for the Feasts of All Saints and All Souls. The program culminates in Tomás Luis de Victoria's last published work, his six-part 1605 Requiem, regarded by many as one of the finest works of the Spanish Renaissance.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2015
This new anthology from that ever-improving and most elegant of mixed Oxbridge choirs, the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge ... all the pieces on this disc are performed with Clare's customary accomplishment and minute attention to musical detail, with the early-20th-century English works - larger-scale standard repertoire by Bullock, Leighton and Bainton - the most successful.

Financial Times, 2nd November 2015
In Victoria's Officium Defunctorum the Choir of Clare College, conducted by Graham Ross, summons all its eloquence for a masterpiece of the genre.

MusicWeb International, 2nd December 2015
I'd be quite happy to take this mixed-voice non-professional performance to my putative Desert Island ... The programme works surprisingly well as a whole and the more recent English works come over well indeed.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2016
A marvellously sustained and thought-through performance by the Clare College students...Careful but unobtrusive detail is paid to dynamic detail...a firm, enthusiastic recommendation.
