Notes & Reviews:

"Good recordings of the vocal works of William Billings do not come along very often, but when they do they are welcome, especially since they tend to be very good - like this one...[This recording] offers a nice cross-section of Billings's forms and styles, with good examples of his hymns and psalms and an especially strong selection of his longer and more ambitious anthems..." -Barker, ARG
