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. Its trump card is undoubtedly his new spirituals cycle 'Feel the Spirit,' premiered in New York in June. 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
