Notes & Reviews:

"The fine Copland performance concludes an excellent disc. The choir is consistently splendid. It's evident that James Morrow has trained them very well indeed. Balance, tuning and intonation are all exemplary and, as far as I could judge without access to scores, their rhythmic security is also spot-on. Though the singers are, presumably, fairly young and have a nice fresh tone there's also a fullness and depth to the tone that you don't always get with student choirs. The recorded sound is excellent and the liner notes are very useful. The absence of texts is a pity but it doesn't dim my enthusiasm for this very stimulating collection of fine performances of mainly unfamiliar repertoire." -MusicWeb (Bargain of the Month)
