    " Essential Listening" Gramophone February 2014

    "All of these winning selections are beautifully rendered by Winchester Cathedral's very accomplished and sweet-toned Girls' Choir....Regent honors their efforts with excellent sound: the well-played organ gave my sub-woofer  a workout...It all adds up to a veritable feast for English choral nuts"

    American Record Guide July/August 2013

    "The cathedral choir is admirable throughout, the girls' voices not only contrasting but blending beautifully with the men, and under director Andrew Lumsden they capture the essential essence of this music. It's a very enjoyable experience."

    Choir and Organ May/June 2013

    "Yet again the Winchester Cathedral Girls' Choir and Lay Clerks give a splendid performance under Andrew Lumsden, this time with organ accompaniment from Simon Bell. Winchester Cathedral's glorious acoustic allows the voices to soar up to the heavens and yet again producer Gary Cole has captured the magic for us."
