Review of Choirs of Angels in Sunday Times

The choir’s newest CD, Choirs of Angels – Music from the Eton Choirbook Vol. 2, has received the following review in the Sunday Times:

We hear relatively rarely the great and challenging repertoire of the 16th-century Eton Choirbook, sung by choirs of men and boys. This second volume of what one hopes will be a long series brings to five antiphons, each by a different composer, an abundant grace, sumptuousness and sense of space, with not a hint of frailty in the upper lines. The eight voice parts of John Browne’s ‘O Maria salvatoris mater’ are trumped by the nine of Robert Wylkynson’s ‘Salve regina’. Richard Davy, William Cornysh and Walter Lambe complete a highly desirable recital.
