    ‘These are benchmark performances by which others  should be judged. Buy it!’
    Organists' Review March 2015

    'Another fine offering from the Winchester Cathedral Choir under the solid direction of Andrew Lumsden. You may recall the glowing review (listed here) I posted for another recording from them a while back. The same sense of commitment and emotional engagement is present in this new recording ... 
    you can't help but feel your soul rise.' Classical Music Sentinel  November 14

    'The gently inflected legato of the boys’ and girls’ voices here, well accompanied, and Andrew Lumsden’s spacious phrasing, deliver engagingly. '
    Choir and Organ January 2015
