Review quote

Here is a new setting of the words of St. Thomas Aquinas (in Latin) that captures the breadth of the words in a harmonic style that is both familiar and contemporary. McDowall has composed a number of lovely choral pieces, and this one is another to consider. * Philip Brunelle, The American Organist, June 2016 *show more
