'A superb record. Exploring these pieces is a moving experience when the performances are as superlative as these. Very strongly recommended. Record of the Month' (The Monthly Guide to Recorded Music)
Ave Maria is characterised by its full, rich textures, with the upper and lower voices of the choir heard separately before being combined for the poignant second half of this text in praise of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
