Notes & Reviews:

Graham Ross directs the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge in a wide-ranging and moving sequence of music for remembrance. The program's centerpiece is Maurice Duruflé's poignant 1948 setting of the Requiem Mass. Also included are John Tavener's "Song for Athene" as well as settings of the text "When David heard" by two of England's foremost 16th-century composers, Thomas Tomkins and Thomas Weelkes.

MusicWeb International, 27th October 2016
The choir sings extremely well throughout ... This very fine account of the DuruflT Requiem sets the seal on a thoughtfully conceived and expertly performed programme. The Clare College choir is among the finest of the UK's collegiate choirs and this new release is fully up to the standards we've come to expect from them.

Financial Times, 11th November 2016
In the ideal ambience of Lincoln Cathedral, Ross and the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, rise to a high-class performance that breathes an elevated air of Gallic sensuality and measured grandeur.

Record Review, 12th November 2016
The magnificent Father Willis Organ ... is played to magnificent effect by Matthew Jorysz, reminding me why I sometimes end up preferring Durfule's organ only version of the Requiem ... it's interesting hearing the Clare College Choir after King's [College Choir, Cambridge], the focus and security of the sopranos especially...altogether an excellent account.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2016
This is a beautifully programmed and performed disc... Graham Ross takes a full-on approach, with tempos brisk and passions raised - mezzo Jennifer Johnson's 'Pie Jesu' is, in particular, an emotional tour de force... of recordings of the choir and organ version of DuruflT's Requiem, I've heard none better. This, though, is just the crowning point of an engaging and thought-provoking recital.
