“I have little but praise for the accomplished singing on this disc. Trinity College Choir consist not of boys’ voices at the top but of girls’ … Marlow articulates the music so coherently that he neatly side-steps any impression of aimlessness … . carefully graduated dynamics, close attention to the meaning and spirit of the text and disciplined singing result in readings which sparkle with life …Trinity College Choir are so secure in this respect and so comfortably on top of the task which Bach sets them that my previously longheld predilection for (more) instrumental support has taken a severe knock . These are serene but radiant performances which deserve an elevated place among their competitors … the accomplishment is beyond question. Recommended” (Gramophone)
