Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:

"Many of the tracks are quite stunning... The choir is splendidly directed... Their achievements are remarkable... When they let their hair down they surely are almost without parallel." - Sounds Alive

"A very fine recording... I urge you to buy it, for this kind of music-making is fresh, genuinely communicative and above all sheer entertainment in the best sense." - Musical Opinion

"Young in fervour but mature in musicianship – dynamic control is especially impressive.” **** - Choir & Organ (UK)
