Notes & Reviews:

Edward Higginbottom, who this year celebrates 30years as Director of Music at New College Oxford, presents the first program in a trio of CDs exploring 20th-century choral music with Poulenc and His Contemporaries. His liturgical writing, deeply contemplative and affection in its simplicity, now and again shows flashes of wit and charm. His contemporaries included Olivier Messiaen and choral composer Pierre Villette.

The Daily Telegraph
very special ... outstanding quality both musically and dramatically

Gramophone Magazine
The three works by Villette demonstrate the range and quality and the subtle radiance of his writing. O sacrum convivium!, Messiaen's only motet, is nearly five minutes of genuine bliss, typically sensuous and celestial, and close in feeling to his early organ music.
