review extracts: for full reviews click here
"Many of the tracks are quite stunning...the choir is splendidly directed... their achievements are remarkable...when they let their hair down they are surely without parallel" - "Sounds Alive"
"To hear young musicians sing about love is nothing too very remarkable, but to hear such an accomplished young choir as this take on such a ranging wealth of music demands extraordinary attention… inspiring to hear and demanding of great respect and enthusiasm.…This powerfully accomplished… disc serves to remind us of the abilities of young musicians and the truly gratifying results readily at hand for those who make the effort. Sponsor, choir, conductor and label alike deserve great thanks and credit."   -  Haig Mardirossian  - Fanfare (USA)
"The singing is young in fervour but mature in musicianship. The dynamic control is especially impressive". **** (four stars awarded).    "Choir & Organ"(UK)
