The Living Church
“The choir sings with particular attention to phrasing, uniformity of vowels, and a pleasing, blended tonal palette, all of whcih it uses with great effect. Some of the most thrilling music on the recording comes from the French Catholic repertoire of this century, including music by Poulenc, Roger-Ducasse, Dupré and Duruflé. … All in all, highly recommended.” – Bruce Neswick
