All the voices are impressive but I especially mark out Rupert Damerell's counter-tenor (Jesus) which consistently reaps emotional shivers of pleasure This is noticeably in the English cathedral tradition but is marked out by a luxuriance of tone not naturally associated with male voices
Read the review at Classical Music on the Web
A disc recommendable for those following the British a cappella choral tradition and with a readiness still to be 'surprised by joy'.

An often beautiful and fascinating work.
