Notes & Reviews:

"Whatever you feel about Rutter's compositions - and I admit I'm not usually a fan - you'd have to be a real killjoy to be able to resist this disc.

The five central pieces - flanked by two rather predictable settings for full choir and orchestra, complete with brass fanfares - showcase Marshall's lovely mezzo voice, rich yet focused..." ***** -BBC Music
