“...an excellent disc: the singing is incredibly tight, in the manner to which it has become increasingly accustomed under its musical director, Owen Rees.”
“An absolutely superb performance…British university choral sound at its best.”
“The performance is excellent. The choir of Queen’s College…sing the work splendidly and with great assurance and commitment. The sound is fresh and clear, the choir achieving a satisfying blend and very good diction….the singers have clearly been trained very well by Owen Rees.”
