The Rodolfus Choir mark both Benjamin Britten’s centenary year and the 30th anniversary of the choir’s first concert with this new programme of works by both composers. The album includes the premiere recording of Paul Mealor’s Praise, which was commissioned especially for the Rodolfus Choir. The choir’s previous disc of choral works by Elgar was widely-praised by critics.

"... Allwood leads his fresh-voiced choir in thoroughly reliable performances throughout. The Mealor works are as appealing as anything from his pen. The writing in the Four Madrigals is especially attractive, particularly the final setting ’A spotless rose’,while the change-ringing inspired Praise (2013), with organ and percussion accompaniment, evolves into an engaging cycle that tests the Rodulfus sopranos."  **** (Very Good)

Philip Reed - Choir & Organ magazine - March/April 2014


"...There is energy and tenderness here, making this a performance I might well choose when I want to hear this well-loved work. It is just one of the attractions of this beautifully sung collection."

William Hedley - International Record Review - February 2014
