Notes & Reviews:

"...Ontario's Elora Festival Singers and director Noel Edison should be declared national treasures by the Canadian government. The artistic care and professionalism that they commit to every project are exemplary, and there's no doubt that Healey Willan could have no finer advocates than these outstanding musicians... If you haven't heard Willan, this is a great introduction. And if you have, you should know that the disc's final track, the beloved motet Rise up, my love, my fair one, is without question its ideal recorded realization, the thing that proves that Edison and his choir really understand what Willan is about and know how to bring his uniquely expressive choral forms to life. And it's reason enough to own this CD, a performance so sure and lovely that you want to hear it again and again." -ClassicsToday
