Review quote

Oxford University Press, one of the world's major publishers of choral music, has done it again . . . both Blackwell and OUP are to be congratulated for such an innovative and comprehensive addition to choral publishing. The collection bears the OUP hallmark: the clearly laid-out scores with keyboard reductions . . . It should be emphasised that all the pieces are worthy of thorough examination and it is to be hoped that choral directors and singers alike will
explore this vast treasure-trove for themselves . . . Cantica Nova not only provides singers and choral directors with an outstanding resource but is a fascinating insight into choral composing in the UK today. * Matthew Owens, Choir & Organ Sept 04 * What has the potential to be an interesting and valuable volume is limited due to what would be for many choirs prohibitive musical complexity. However, as one would expect from OUP, this volume is well constructed and presented, and contains original, captivating music that deserves to find its place in the frequently all too traditional choral repertoire. * David McKee, CMQ Sept 04 * New Horizons has as its objective the show-casing of contemporary choral music with something new and individual to say, including work by lesser-known, younger-generation composers who may not hitherto have caught the public eye. These laudable objectives are to the fore in Cantica Nova . . . Whether or not you intend to perform these works, however, Cantica Nova is a valuable publication for gauging the quality, variety and extent of choral composition in the UK. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer, Feb 05 *
