Notes & Reviews:

"There are several surprises on this recording, beginning with the repertoire--19th century Spanish sacred music, much of which is recorded here for the first time and nearly all of which will be virtually unknown to choral music listeners... Not surprisingly from an English choir, the standard of ensemble singing is exceptionally high, and on both a technical and interpretive level there's nothing to fault here... Most listeners will find this program an enjoyable if not thoroughly enlightening experience and will appreciate such ambitious and passionately wrought works as Vicente Goicoechea's (1854-1916) Ave Maria or Tomas Breton's (1850-1923) Salve montserratina. There's much fascinating music here." -Classics Today
