American Record Guide “The quality of the performances, as we expect from St Thomas, is excellent. The recording is also exemplary.” – Gatens

The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians “The Saint Thomas Choir still has the glorious sound we have come to expect, and the brass and percussion playing is especially vigorous and polished. … Full texts, biographies, and credits are included. Frederick Hohman is to be congratulated on the production, engineering, and mastering of this magnificent program.“ – Victor Hill – Feb 2007
