Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
Fanfare (5-6/98, p.208) - "...David Hill directs his choir of men and boys with great skill, and the sensitive musicianship of Stephen Farr and Christopher Monks demonstrates the individuality and élan of the Irish composer's writing for organ..."
BBC Music (3/98, p.64) - Performance: 4 (out of 5), Sound: 3 (out of 5) - "...The Winchester boys are tonally and technically superb....The organ-playing and David Hill's musical direction are utterly idiomatic; overall this is an excellent survey of Stanford's superb contribution to the sacred choral repertoire."
