    "Were the preformances not so devout, there would be something eerie about the technical perfections of the singing. Bravo!"

    International Record Review March 08

    "A most beguiling collection of works commissioned by this superb choir...The Saint Louis Chamber Chorus sing with polish and a full, well balanced tone throughout, caught in splendid sound"


    Gramophone June 08

    "This Requiem is a lovely, thoughtful and eminently approachable piece. I should imagine that it’s quite demanding to sing, not least in terms of sustaining the lines and keeping the pitch. Suffice to say that the Saint Louis Chamber Chorus sounds to be fully equal to the task."

    Music Webb April 08
