Limelight Magazine

“I can confidently say that this recording is one of the finest of sacred choral and organ music you’ll ever hear”

Gramophone Magazine

“Sitting front and center at a recent Trinity Choir of Cambridge concert… was, sonically speaking, a heavenly experience.”

The New York Times

“Layton’s choral scholars sing this technically challenging music… with absolute purity of tone, perfection of intonation, and depth of feeling…Time and again I simply stopped writing, frozen in place by the sheer otherworldly beauty of what I was hearing.”

Fanfare Magazine

“Here was choral singing of rare distinction by what must be the best mixed choir in Cambridge, directed by one of the finest choral directors around. A very special occasion – even for Cambridge.”
