Reviews

'St Paul's is the king of cathedral choirs, and the sound of their singing, with the majesty of the organ in the awesome reverberance of the great building to match, is as rich and noble as any sound on earth' (Gramophone)

'Truly heroic performances from the St Paul's Choir which is on top form. A memorable record' (Organists' Review)
