“The choir of Trinity College, Cambridge under Richard Marlow add substantially to their reputation in this recording. They begin with the Benedicite , strong in rhythm as in full-bodied tone, and end with the great eight-part Hear my prayer, skilful in shaping, secure in intonation, sensitive in balance.” (Gramophone) “Marlow gets god results from his singers; such expressive anthems as Remember Not.. and Hear My Prayer.. are eloquently done and beautifully recorded.” (Penguin Guide 3 stars)
