"...It’s often said that Samuel Barber was at his best as a miniaturist, and there are some delightful, beautifully sung miniatures here ...The choir show off their technique and precise pitching in the short cycle Remembrances... The three organ pieces at the end of the programme are much more than encores: a quiet meditation on Silent Night, some intriguingly adventurous variations on the hymn Wondrous Love and a tiny prelude on Happy birthday to you which manages to be both celebratory and affectionate."

Michael Oliver - Classic CD - August 1998


Performance ****      Sound ****

Roderic Dunnett - BBC Music magazine - October 1998


"...The standard of choral singing is beyond reproach and I am sure that, although Barber’s idiom may involve the listener in some effort, this CD will show Samuel Barber to be in the front rank of choral composers."

DRC - The Organ - Vol 77


"...The performances are exquisite." "...the choir’s blend, intonation and diction are as perfect as humanly possible. Brown’s phrasing and sense of timing fit these pieces like a glove. I could not imagine a more perfect match of performers and music."

Bond - American Record Guide – Nov/Dec.1998
