Sample audio extracts
‘… Ayres’s anthems are all about generous simplicity: big, juicy unison lines, warm three- or four-part homophony and affirmative, tonal-with-a-scrunch harmonies… Selwyn Choir, [who] have a more ingenuous, youthful sound than their rivals Clare or Trinity that’s well suited to the material.’ Gramophone February 2021
‘Sarah MacDonald and the chapel choir of Selwyn College sing with evident affection and enthusiasm… the voice that comes over is appealing and engaging, many of the works sound eminently performable (and most are available through Paul Ayres’ website), and so should appeal to choirs of all sizes and standards.’ Planet Hugill January 2021
