Notes & Reviews:

Edward Higginbottom and his Choir of New College Oxford present the second of three CDs exploring 20th-century choral music, this one focusing on contemporary British compositions that have figured in their popular New College chapel programs and delighted many diverse audiences of students, fellows and visitors alike.

BBC Music Magazine
There are few boy choristers who can phrase as expressively as Edward Higginbottom's firm rich-toned altos ... a dignified, darkly eloquent performance.

Gramophone Magazine
... a rich, well chosen selection of works that confirm just how vigorous and robust the British tradition remains, and what safe hands that tradition is in when composers of this calibre are willing to continue it with such understanding and respect for the strengths and needs of the church choir.
