It has also garnered wide critical acclaim, including this selection of excellent reviews:

***** The Observer “ecstatic”  “richly challenging”  “The Choir tackles it all woth confidence and clarity”

***** Planet Hugill “a terrific disc”  “These are performances to treasure, of great intensity and remarkable power”

**** Financial Times “The Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge, has done one of its old boys proud”  “ambition has paid off handsomely”  “the music on this disc is so varied and inspiring”

CD of the month​ Choir and Organ “Andrew Nethsingha and the St John’s forces have this often-challenging repertoire well under control, delivering characterful yet authoritative performances of which they can be justly proud”

Simon Toyne (leading conductor and choir trainer)  “Staggering.  One of the most significant choral recordings of recent times?”
