Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
American Record Guide (11-12/97, pp.181-82) - "With ony 25 singers in Polyphony (and an all-male alto section to boot) this is an intimate, more chaste Rutter than you're used to hearing in the composer's own accounts of his music. It all works very nicely, though, because the singing is gorgeous....There's beautiful music here, the performances are classy and full of finesse, and the sound is out of this world..."
