    Reviews of the choir’s previous recording on Regent - ‘A Year in Saint Louis’ (REGCD415)

    ‘The balance, attack and dynamics of the choir are of a
    consistently high standard.’
    Organists’ Review December 2014

    ‘This may be the choir’s first commercial recording, but it’s been well worth the wait. Noted for its performance of Anglican repertoire, this extremely
    well-trained group presents an unusual and interesting repertoire ‘
    Choir and Organ January 2015

    ‘These singers easily master the wide range of choral styles represented here, from clear and limpid early polyphony through cool Anglican elegance to a spiritual that rocks and rolls ... There’s a lovely luster to their sound ... needlepoint intonation in the a cappella pieces.’
    American Record Guide March 2015
