Notes & Reviews:

"The performances are of a very high quality; the choir, conducted by Christopher Robinson, sings with unusual purity, warm blend, excellent diction, and expressive breadth in repertoire that ranges from plainchant to Romantic motets to contemporary classics to traditional carols. In spite of the purity of the blend, the choir has a strongly individualistic character; this is not simply a generic English cathedral choir sound, but one that's unaffected, lively, and varied." -All Music Guide

Notes & Reviews:
