Review quote

Magnus Williamson's excellent new editions of two particularly lovely Elizabethan settings of the Evening Canticles are welcome for myriad reasons, not least because he has selected a pitch one tone higher than the original, rather than the now 'old hat' minor third. Many choristers will appreciate this more pure look to the score, while some may be challenged by the lower range of the alto parts, and the resulting slightly darker sonority invites the choirmaster to
explore a wider spectrum of interpretational colour. The practicality of these editions is admirable: both scores are lavishly laid out, easy to read and carefully thought through from the performers' point of view. * Choir and Organ March 05 * These provide scholarly and clear editions of works that are rarely heard outside our cathedrals. Perhaps these publications will provide a real opportunity for a wider dissemination since there is much to relish and enjoy. The writing is for both divided and tutti choir and would suit a secure choir looking for something different from this period. * Malcolm Goldring, Music Teacher, August 05 *
