"This issue of music by Samuel Wesley (acclaimed as the ‘English Mozart’ by Boyce) is delightful. Webber and the Choir … give a vibrant account of the vigorously contrapuntal In exitu Israel, enchant with simple melodiousness in gems like Ave Regina caelorum … and enthuse with infectious exuberance in Domine salvam fac." — BBC Music Magazine

 

Excellent recital...the choir has a deservedly growing reputation, with voices of good, fresh quality, ears well-attuned to each other and admirable alertness on matters of phrasing and rhythm.
Gramophone, 1996
