'Director Stephen Rice brings perceptive musical insights to these accounts', writes Kate Bolton-Porciatti. 'His vocal ensemble may be slender but the singing is robust and buoyantly articulated. Boyish upper voices offset velvety tenors and basses, and the relatively close recording perspective produces a sound at once lucid and lustrous.'
