Notes & Reviews:

"Wolfgang Helbich's array of singers is impressive, fresh-voiced, and responsive to ever textual nuance: tenors reassuringly lighten the weight of sin; basses stride out across an 80-year life-span; a solo ensemble is bound indivisbly by a chromatic chain of sequences at 'I leave you not'. The choir sounds large, but remarkably focused in an arresting acoustic." ***** - George Pratt, BBC Music Magazine
