    "it is music in a perpetual state of climax...the overall choral sound is wonderfully blended and must rank as one of the top cathedral sounds outside London"

    BBC Music Magazine March 2007

    Featured in January 2007 Issue of Choir and Organ

    " The singing of Wells Cathedral Choir - its fine eighteen-voice girl choristers on the top line - is immaculate and Matthew Owens, for whom several of the works were written, directs with flair and obvious enthusiasm for Bednall's music."
    The Organ February 2007
