Notes & Reviews:

On this disc, the Choir of St John's College, Cambridge and the St John's Sinfonia, conducted by Andrew Nethsingha, perform choral works by Pelham Humfrey and Henry Purcell, including O sing unto the Lord. Four soloists join them: British Countertenor Iestyn Davies, James Gilchrist, Neal Davies, and David Stout.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2013
It is nice these days to have a chance to hear some of Purcell's church anthems sung by a choir of boys and men...It is in integrated works such as O Lord my God, where the expressive urgency of this choir's soloists can rub off, that the choir is at its best; less successful are the more patchwork pieces.

Sunday Times, 2nd December 2012
Nethsingha juxtaposes such relatively unfamiliar fare with masterpieces including O Sing unto the Lord. He is a committed custodian of the Oxbridge choral tradition, as are his fine soloists.
