Notes and Editorial Reviews

Under David Hill's expert direction this choir has achieved a depth and body of tone totally appropriate to this full-blooded Iberian music' (The Good CD Guide) 'This goes to the head of the list of some fine versions of this requiem' (Fanfare, USA) GRAMOPHONE CRITICS' CHOICE PREIS DER DEUTSCHEN SCHALLPLATTENKRITIK 'Glorious.
