Good new music for upper voices is often surprisingly hard to come by, so choirs may well fall with gratitude upon the 15 items of For Him all Stars . . . Yet if nothing breaks the mould, Alan Bullard's exuberant 'Ring all the bells' is first-rate, Jenny McLeod's powerful 'Vulcan' provides welcome variety by exploring lower registers, while the gentle euphony of Howard Skempton's 'Into this world' also offers something distinctive. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer, Feb 07 *
