Notes & Reviews:

"There are 29 singers listed in the booklet, giving a rather bigger and more unfettered sound than usual from this group. Not surprising, perhaps, given the meaty Russianesque program. The repertoire is broad church; it is music in a continuous state of exaltation - open-mouthed awe to ecstatic joy. As ever, the lines move with the indomitable motion of the planets, and this broad unfolding has always been the most alluring quality of Christopher's style, for me...70 minutes of tranquil, wistful beauty." -BBC Music Magazine
