American Record Guide “If presentation is everything, this deserves high praise. The excellent recording presents mostly familiar music arranged as a journey from expectation to fulfillment for the seasons of Advent and Christmas. … this is one of the best-arranged seasonal recordings I’ve found. … There is no better recording available of ‘The Lamb’ (Tavener), performed here with meticulous attention to dynamics. … Lovers of this tradition can take heart that it is kept alive with fervor in Boston. As a bonus, two of Boston’s best organs can be heard in this recording.” – R Moore

Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians – Victor Hill This recording combines choral and organ works. The subtitle is “Music for the Christmas Season,” but the program begins with Advent pieces… The choir has a most attractive tone, and the performances are fully idiomatic. The liner provide full texts and biographies. – Victor Hill
