'Sumptuously recorded and delivered with obvious affection for the music, this is my personal record of the year … Westminster Cathedral Choir's discography is distinguished by immaculate preparation, inspired direction, outstanding choral singing and superlative recorded sound. A simply glorious performance and, as with the Martin and Pizzetti recording, this entire release should inspire even those for whom sacred music is usually a closed book. In short, this is a disc not to be missed' (Gramophone)

'The intensity and focus of the treble voices, for which this choir is famed, brings a luminosity to Janacek's angular lines that compels attention … radiant performances' (BBC Music Magazine)

'These pieces have an affecting quality, and they are most beautifully sung and lucidly recorded' (International Record Review)

'An absolute triumph. Highly recommended' (Classic CD)
