Critic Reviews

these youthful singers ... sing with the sensitivity and precision you would expect of the next generation of choral scholars. They give some lovely accounts in this interesting collection
Stephen Pritchard, The Observer (May 2010)
this disc has quality stamped all over it: ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩
Terry Blain, BBC Music Magazine (Sep 2010)
From the very opening of this disc - a mixture of sacred and secular choral works - the Rodolfus Choir, under the astute directorship of Ralph Allwood, capture Howells’s idiom perfectly, and their understanding of this music is reflected in the high quality of their performances.
Em Marshall, MusicWeb International (Jul 2011)

This disc promises to be a one of the choir's best to date, with well-known settings such as Howells' Collegium Regale setting of the Te Deum and Benedicite alongside some pieces recorded less frequently, including Walking in the Snow and Sweetest of Sweets.
