Notes & Reviews:

The Rodolfus Choir return to Signum with a stunning new collection of choral works drawn from composers spanning over 500 years. Ralph Allwood MBE introduces the programme and the personal inspiration behind it: The concept of time is so rich that it has inspired a large body of writing and musical setting. This collection is a tribute to my father, because I learnt so much about time from him. Mathematician and philosopher, theologian, musician and physicist, he was fascinated by our perception of time, and he and I had many discussions about its nature. In a trivial sense, music traces the passage of time, but also, as with all events, manipulates it. A watch traces a different pattern of time during events. But who is to say that the watch is 'right'.

BBC Radio 3, 28th November 2015
Their musings on time take us in some fascinating and unexpected directions ... a rewarding sequence, a good recording as well.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2015
The fresh, unforced quality of these young singers brings a pleasant friction to grave-facing works like Gibbons's What is our life? and Howells's Even such is time, and comes into its own in the soft-focus sentimentality of Parry's Music, when soft voices die. Rooted in a warmly present bass section, the choral blend is always thoughtfully calibrated.
