'This is good singing, and many choirs would envy the tight ensemble, impeccable intonation and crystal-clear diction, not to mention the unfailingly excellent solo voices drawn from the ranks of the choir' (International Record Review)

'At the heart of the sequence lie Tomkins's deeply expressive When David heard and Then David mourned, pieces in which the tension of the dissonances is relished by James O'Donnell's Westminster Abbey singers more fully than is often the case with English Choirs' (The Irish Times)
