‘This is a distinctive and satisfying Bruckner choral recording’ (All Music)

‘Such are the attractions of Bruckner’s symphonies that his substantial body of sacred choral music is still neglected. This St Albans recital is an excellent way of getting to know it better…’ (****/***** BBC Music Magazine)

‘Confidence and precision from St Albans Cathedral Choir & Andrew Lucas make this survey of Bruckner’s motets a must’ (Classical Notes)
