Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International, November 2012
This seasonal offering reveals the quirky programming policy of artistic director Paul Dyer...I'm not sure anyone else has ever dared programme Angelus ad virginem and Billy Joel together, but the man who hymned his Uptown Girl shares stage space with Herbert Howells and Henry Purcell as well, and doesn't seem unduly to suffer.
