'Skilled, thoughtful performances of three great works by a marvellously trained choir' (Gramophone)

‘Vivid acoustics and mellifluous phrasing in the plainsong pieces evoke a calming contemplative atmosphere. The exemplary tonal finesse and beautifully judged dynamic response in the votive antiphon Ave rosa sine spinis is striking' (BBC Music Magazine)

'The bright-toned singing combines the clarity and precision essential in this repertoire with notably sensitive shaping of individual lines and excellently judged speeds. The results are exhilarating' (The Daily Telegraph)

‘Winchester is one of today’s finest English cathedral choirs, and this release can only sustain that reputation. Connoisseurs will find it a delight’ (American Record Guide)

‘A quite magnificent recording’ (International Record Review)

‘An outstanding CD’ (Cathedral Music)

‘It is all glorious music and the ambience of the Cathedral is well caught in this recording. A delightful CD, strongly recommended’ (The Organ)
