Review

'On their showing here, St Albans Abbey Girls Choir can stand comparison with the best boys choirs, even if their sound is slightly different (if anything more human)...The gain here is that we hear Mendelssohn s impeccable, expressive part writing, which the lay clerks clearly relish. Throughout, great care has obviously been taken over words and phrasing. The purity and steadiness of the girls voices are in themselves utterly delightful. 4*/4*' --Roger Nichols, BBC Music Magazine October 2012

'Hear My Prayer...[is] sung with a touching naivety by Laura Hicks... the ThreeMotets for female coives and organ, Op. 39, are performed with a pleasing freshness... best of all is the wonderful sonority of the eight-voice a cappella bookeneds, the Six Anthems and the setting of Psalm 43, Richte mich, Gott. And Winpenny's organ solo is of a comparable splendour.' --Richard Lawrence, Gramophone October 2012

'These fresh young voices, joined by the impressive lay clerks, make the purest sound in this Mendelssohn collection… this is a working choir, playing a distinguished part in the daily round of a great building.' --Stephen Pritchard, The Observer - Sep. 2012
