Notes & Reviews:

This collection is drawn from four successful releases from the early 1990s with the dynamic Finzi Singers, directed by Paul Spicer. The Singers produce sounds of melting beauty. Howell's choral music has a clear religious cast to it, even in works of a more secular nature. "The Finzi Singers, 18-strong, give a fresh and atmospheric, beautifully-molded performance." -The Penguin Complete Guide "The imaginative registration, choral tone, recorded sound and written presentation is all admirable features of a highly recommendable disc." - The Gramophone "A choir of real accomplishment that goes from strength and strength with every disc it makes." -The Independent

Gramophone
The imaginative registration, choral tone, recorded sound and written presentation are all admirable features of a highly recommendable disc'
