BBC Music Magazine

BBC Music Magazine’s Vocal/Choral CD of the Month, May 2007

“This will be one of my discs of the year, without question. Rarely have I heard a cappella singing of such quality and refinement or a recording that so perfectly complements it.”
Musicweb International

“The opening track, Behold the Bridegroom, is simply one of the most impressive bits of choral singing I have ever heard. And the recording is near-flabbergasting; the soundstage depth extends into the next zip code. The balance between direct sound and hall ambience appears to be perfect (the venue was Kansas City’s Church of the Blessed Sacrament).”
John Marks, Stereophile
