        A beautiful piece but somewhat formulaic in style.

        Great piece, I sung this at Southwark cathedral the other day, great to sing during communion, or in concert. Great service, No hassle, even fits through a mailbox

        Inspiring! When we heard it we decided to perform it ourselves.

        A attractive unusual piece. Not that difficult, provided that your 2 soprano parts don't mind one singing an E and the other a D# against it! The choir took some time before they liked it, but I think most now believe it.

        A thing of absolute beauty - we are considering singing it for our Christmas Carol Service

        This piece is gorgeous. Although it's short, the slow tempo, lush harmonies and pure style helps to make time stand still. Not often performed in the UK. But it will be.
