    Direction Mark Opstad, Orgue William Whitehead

    I enjoyed each work immensely. There’s probably nothing this choir couldn’t sing, and spectacularly well. They deliver clean, crisp singing, with perfect intonation and balance. They achieve standards of phrasing, dynamics and interpretive intensity that many fine adult ensembles would kill for.’

    American Record Guide July 2012


    "Caplet's three-voiced Mass for uncaccompanied voices is impressive, both as a composition and for the performance Opstad elicits from his youthful performers." Choir & Organ March/April 2011

    "..this mixed boy-girl French choir makes a vigorous, refresing sound on its debut CD"
    Classicfm Magazine April 2011
