Notes & Reviews:

"...These are performances that tackle the music's primitivism, its unflingching, unsparing setting of the texts head-on. For Pslam 24, voices are bugle-bright, orchestal rhythms searing, as Julian Podger's high tenor soars sensuously over dark, pulsing brass. Complex harmonies and robust male-voice diction shape the affliction of Psalm 129... After all that, Stravinsky's "Symphony of Psalms" seems pretty tame. But this, too, is an unusually fine performance..." ***** -BBC Music
