Reviews

Gramophone

The nine voices of Voces Sacrae display consummate musicianship, sensitivity and technical control. The result is a disc of real pleasure both in the quality of the singing and the programme which, perhaps surprisingly for such a small group, suits Voces Sacrae to a tee. David Lefeber’s sympathetic recording further enhances what is already a wonderful sound.

Musical Opinion

The disc demonstrates the continuing evolution of the English choral tradition.
