Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A generously full CD, spaciously recorded in Winchester Cathedral. The main feature is the rapt, joyous singing of the choir in this magnificent music. Very fine."

- Hi-Fi News, U.K.

"The Choir of Winchester is of infinite flexibility, clarity of speech and a transparency [that is] remarkable, with clarity of sound. The music of William Byrd is served by an interpretation of the highest level."

- Répertoire, France (Translated from French)
