American Record Guide “Save for a few of their selections, this very fine Christmas program would not sound out-of-place in London’s massive edifice of the same name. It is done according to unadulterated Anglican tradition, down to rather British-sounding diction – though both of these ensembles have a richer sound than is normally heard from cathedral choirs in the old country. … you can hear every word and note in the headlong and tricky ‘This Little Babe’ section, which has defeated many a lesser choir. … Their merged voices sound especially thrilling as they soar in stratospheric and sonorous singing … Sound quality is excellent, from a relatively non-reverberant (for a large church) acoustic. Choral-organ balances are especially lucid and non-boomy.” – Koob
