Reviews

'Their commitment to what they are singing rings out with every note. A Boy was Born is imbued with more ravishing feeling than I would have thought possible' (Organists' Review)

'Remarquable! Les Holst Singers se révèlent être de remarquables interprètes de leur cher répertoire national. Cette anthologie atteste du niveau vocal et musical de ce choeur (et donc de leur chef Stephen Layton)' (Diapason, France)

'Interpretaciones tan refrescantes como escrupulosas' (CD Compact, Spain)
