Notes & Reviews:

The Observer
[The repertoire] shows off the warm, immediate New College, Oxford sound in which individuals are encouraged to sing out rather than, as some collegiate choirs prefer, blend in. Some tonal unevenness aside, the results are vivid and committed. One for choral lovers, not purists.
