Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians This joyful disc is both a pleasure to listen to and a source of possible ideas as we prepare music for the Easter season. … The choirs and brass are in top form, and the recording captures them and the splendid Schoenstein organ with superb sound. – Victor Hill

The American Record Guide In a review of a previous issue by Smith and the singers of St Paul’s, I described the singing as ‘a quite stunning facsimile of the English cathedral sound … superbly rich and more substantial than many an English cathedral choir’. That impression is reinforced by the present release. – Gatens

The Living Church Smith is responsible for the wonderful set of modern Anglican chant tunes to which Psalm 118 is expressively sung, and other descants and hymn arrangements. … The musical meat of the service, however, comes in the canticles and anthems, all from 20th-century greats in Episcopal church music. – Alan Kimbrough
