'[...] it's a forthright, devotional interpretation that avoids heavyweight solemnity without losing sight of the work's ritual elements. [...] This is a fine choir, the treble tone appealingly bright, altos and tenors unearthly yet beautiful. [...] The reverberant acoustic of St Thomas's Church itself adds immeasurably to the liturgical atmosphere.'
Gramophone
