Notes & Reviews:

"The singers, of course, are first-rate, virtuoso musicians who go after Williamson's densest, thorniest passages fearlessly and confidently, while creating the desired warmth and brilliance in the Britten-like "New Guinea" movement of the Symphony and in the above-mentioned sections of the Requiem. The difficult job of capturing vocal detail while maintaining the ensemble balances in this kind of music is admirably achieved here, in a hall with just the right ambience and space for the 30-plus singers' voices to pleasingly blend and resonate. This is one for fans and for the newly curious." -Classics Today
