Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This is a most attractive program of both ancient and modern sacred works. The St Martin's Chamber choir bring world-class luster to Denver's choral scene. There aren't many American chamber choirs that can top them. Their singing is invariably smooth, sensitive, sonorous, and technically ­flawless. They're beautifully recorded here, and the booklet is more than adequate. It you follow the best American choirs, their work belongs on your shelf."

-- Lindsay Koob, American Record Guide [3/2009]
