'Most of the music here is performed by the good soloists and enthusiastic chorus with gusto, so the chief impression is of lusty praise, though there are some delightfully fairly florid solo passages where Mozart's adoration of the femal voice is more evident than his devotion to God' (BBC Music Magazine)
'Mozart's musical planning is exemplary; this is a subtly devised and well-executed record' (International Record Review)
'The music itself is joyous and comforting. The St Paul’s Cathedral Choir (comprising boy choristers and Vicars Choral) sings superbly, the playing of the St Paul’s Mozart Orchestra (very much ‘authentic’) is poised and polished, and there is a notable contribution from Simon Johnson on the lovely organ of St Giles’ Cripplegate, where these performances were so excellently recorded. Add in four fine vocal soloists and we have sacred music that is uplifting and engaging. Texts are included and the conductor writes the helpful booklet note' (Time Out)
