CD reviews …  

“Intonation is spot-on throughout this taxing work and there are no audible edits… Full marks … to the splendid soloists, especially Julia Scozzafava, whose alto solo sounds like the genuine article.” Gramophone

“10 out of 10 stars” for artistic and sound quality. Less than one minute into this new recording you know you’re in a world unlike any other for this work.

And somehow, the sound of this 56-voice choir, captured in Kansas City’s Cathedral of St. Peter the Apostle, creates a strangely affecting resonance, vibrant, timeless, eternally echoing.”

As you listen, absorbed in the music’s luxurious sound and the performance’s stirring effect, you realize that there are not so many recordings, nor are there so many musical works that are able to hold you so thoroughly enthralled from beginning to end.” Classics Today

“… The sound as caught in Kansas’s Cathedral of St Peter the Apostle is rich, especially in the great blazes of the two big settings towards the end …” BBC Music Magazine

“…overwhelming devotional intensity … The US conductor Charles Bruffy and the Phoenix and Kansas City Chorales have long been outstanding interpreters of this repertory and their performance has a devotional intensity that is often overwhelming.”   The Guardian

“I very much hope that this first-rate recording will do more to bring this masterpiece to a wider listening public – it certainly deserves to.” International Record Review

“Chandos has provided a splendid engineered recording of the Vigil which in musical terms speaks for itself as an important disc for any collection.”
