"the superb performances are characterised by a phenomenal sense of control and restraint, with every note carefully crafted and bathed in the radiant acoustic of the college chapel" Church Music Quarterly, March 2014

“Another choral hit with this exceptional and fascinating collection themed around musical representations of the Virgin Mary. And once again, Merton College Choir is the immaculate vehicle for performances that encompass the old and the new.”

— The Scotsman, January 2015, FIVE STARS

“Well performed, beautifully sung and exquisitely recorded. Who could ask for anything more?”
