★★★★ Organ playing from the scholars is top-notch and the singing from these young voices is always unforced and balanced. Familiar music here, in an energetic new release.
Choir & Organ, March 2016
Merton choir’s singing is notable for its clarity. The polyphonic lines of Byrd’s Diliges Dominum, the antiphonal effects of Harris’s classic Faire is the heaven and even the dense textures of Parry’s Blest pair of sirens have about them an almost class-like transparency… this is a lovely collection of good music, well performed, beautifully sung and exquisitely recorded. Who could ask for anything more?
Gramophone, April 2016
Elegant, affective and at the same time intense as anyone could wish for
Music & Vision, April 2016
A very fine disc indeed ... one of the very best British collegiate choirs
MusicWeb International, April 2016
Splendid ... a disc to be heard again and again
