    ‘In collective music-making of the highest quality, the programme’s contrasts between serene calm and passionate drama are vividly captured in Rouen’s pellucid acoustics... All-in-all, this is a highly satisfying recording of a compelling programme of music – a credit to all concerned.’
    ★★★★★ Choir and Organ 2019

    ‘It is truly, an arresting and captivating aural experience in which that rare combination of outstanding performance, sumptuous recording and gorgeous music coalesce into something very special.’ MusicWeb February 2020 ‘

    This is a recording of extraordinary beauty. The unaltered Cavaille-Coll at St Ouen is a musical wonder to behold; the liner notes testify to its very fragile condition, yet there is no hint of its remarkable sound being compromised in this recording. Colin Walsh’s playing is masterly...’
    ★★★★ Organists’ Review March 2020

    ‘This is a sonic experience to be savored again and again, with repertoire, performers, and recording alike being of the highest quality. Most highly recommended.’
    The American Organist July 2020

    The combination of Cavaille- Coll's Rouen masterpiece, the sensitive singing of the senior girls of Romsey Abbey choir and the perfectly- chosen repertoire would be enough to warrant a place in the library of many music lovers... Colin Walsh's playing is, of course, vivid and impeccable...The choir gives an innately musical performance, both sensitive and dramatic. Great credit must be given to Gary Cole’s engineering of the disc as a whole, but especially of the Litanies, with perfect balance and ensemble of the choir and the organ far above them. Highly recommended.’
