NOMINATED FOR A GRAMOPHONE AWARD 2015
"What a force the Trinity choir has become, and the strength in-depth it has developed, in the first eight years of Stephen Layton's directorship."
BBC Music Magazine
"Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds goes from strength to strength, if the evidence of this exemplary recording is anything to go by."
Choir and Organ
"Lovers of this corner of the choral repertoire will find here much to enjoy."
"Stephen Layton draws extraordinary and urgent performances from his young singers – finding both the power (the Trinity Te Deum swells to an almost symphonic climax) and delicacy (Only in Sleep, The Earthly Rose) in music that is never content simply to be pretty."
"Superlative performances of varied and engaging choral works by the Latvian composer Eriks Ešenvalds. Contemporary music making at its best."
The Northern Echo
"As we have come to expect the Trinity College choir sings exceptionally well. They make a super sound; the balance is consistently excellent and the timbre is appealingly fresh yet there is no want of tonal weight when required."
Music Web International
"Layton's Choir is brilliant, make no mistake"
"Any recordings I've heard featuring the Choir of Trinity College Cambridge under the direction of Stephen Layton have always been superb and this one is no exception."
