    ‘Quinn’s style is rich and densely textured and the featured works are of consistently high quality, very well performed on this atmospheric recording.’
    Choir and Organ December 2019

    ‘The music of Iain Quinn (b.1973) is imbued with a rich melange of influences, giving it a highly engaging variety and something of sense of familiarity that is sure to draw the listener in...The choir exhibits meticulous balance and a real beauty of tone.’
    Organists’ Review November 2019

    ‘These are short (most under 5 minutes), contemplative, well-written liturgical pieces with Latin and English texts. I found the Mass for choir and organ and the evening canticles particularly effective...The superb choir gives as good an account of these pieces as possible.’
    American Record Guide March 2020

    ‘Quinn has a mastery of flowing counterpoint, the words always lucid. Continuum, an organ solo with tremulant, seems, to spellbinding effect, almost immobile: mysterious, persuasive, its intimate oscillations to some degree left to the interpreter ’ Church Times May 2020


    Iain Quinn writes in a rich harmonic style which is immediately approachable. His works are designed to enhance choral worship, but are at the same time original and characterful, and are equally at home in concert settings.

    Iain Quinn is a distinguished composer of sacred choral music and a solo organist with an extensive discography, including releases on Chandos, Naxos, and Regent (REGCD476). He is Associate Professor of Organ and Coordinator of Sacred Music at The Florida State University.

    American Record Guide

    ‘...Sarah MacDonald guides her singers to great heights.'
    Choir and Organ

    ‘The clarity of diction and impeccable tuning from the choir make this piece a must for repeated hearings’
