“This disc is perfectly suited to its theme of rejoicing and reflection – the selection of pieces is brilliant. The music itself is fantastic and executed to an astounding level of musicianship.” Music Web International

“The Cambridge Singers are in excellent voice throughout and any listener who enjoys the work of John Rutter will appreciate this collection although, as we said earlier, you will need to check to see whether you already have any of the recordings on earlier releases” Cross Rhythms

“The Cambridge Singers and City of London Sinfonia have the lion’s share of this disc. They present amazing performances: very clear diction, tuning and a great sense of blend within the choir, as well as very expressive playing from the orchestra. One thing that this compilation album highlights is the choir’s consistency over nearly twenty years. Achieving this over such a prolonged period is astounding, and certainly shows the Cambridge Singers occupying the very highest echelons of choral music practice.”
