Reviews

‘The performances are first-rate, with a fine choral blend and highly disciplined ensemble. The trebles are a mix of boys and girls with solid tone and intonation. The recorded sound is also exemplary, with great clarity yet capturing the spaciousness of the cathedral’s acoustic.’ American Record Guide 

‘Great sound quality on this disc. Excellent performances from all concerned. Splendid liner notes. This new release from Regent perfectly presents Lincoln Cathedral Choir, the organ and the Church’s Year. A rare treat, indeed.’ MusicWeb January 2019

‘Both the girls and boys of Lincoln combine to produce a highly vibrant sound… This is a most enjoyable disc much reinforced by Jeffery Makinson’s colourful and faultless accompaniments which especially spotlight the superb Father Willis organ…’ Cathedral Music

‘The choir is in strong form… This provides a lovely picture not only of the musical life of the cathedral, but of its choir.’ PlanetHugill 

‘..this is a wide ranging and thoroughly enjoyable collection well sung by an excellent choir and accompanied appropriately by Jeffrey Makinson on the organ. All who enjoy Anglican choral music will surely find much to appreciate.’  crossrhythms.co.uk
