    ‘Behind everything is the firm and discreet hand of Jonathan Rennert, who draws much subtlety and grace from his singers, never forces them to make a bigger sound than is natural for them, and has an unerring sense of what works musically in the church’s glowing acoustic, beautifully captured by Gary Cole in this fine recording.’ MusicWeb March 2020

    ‘The mixed choir heard on this recording is not large (5-2-2-4). It has an unmistakably English sound: chaste and understated, with excellent discipline.’
    American Record Guide May/June 2020

    ‘...this is a journey into the unexpected although rooted in the Anglican choral tradition. The singing of the small choir of 12 under Jonathan Rennart is excellent and listeners who like to go off the beaten track, so to speak, will enjoy the journey... ’
