The Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians – April 2014 ”There is enormous care, respect, and even tenderness which comes through in listening to the recording. His phrasing is elegant; his clean technique makes the music sparkle. … kudos particularly must go to Christopher Wells for taking on a project of music that has not been recorded before.” – Jonathan Dimmock
