Reviews

'Delectable though this music is, it needs performers who can do it justice, and James O'Donnell and his choir do that and then some. Whether depicting a soul thirsting for the Lord's rest, or giving thanks for salvation, the smooth trebles soar into the rafters of Westminster. This is a CD that brings the listener one step closer to heaven' (bbc.co.uk)

'Although this music is likely to be unknown to most collectors it will prove, as it has to me, a welcome and important discovery' (The Tablet)
