CD Reviews

Excellent choir, excellent music
Gracejoy | New York, NY United States | 12/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like traditional Anglican church music and the sound of men and boys' voices, then this CD is well worth your money. The music is lovely, and the choir has a particularly clear and "gentle" sound that is very pleasant to listen to. The men of the choir all have beautiful voices and the boys sing with a very pure, even, and blended tone--not shrill or overly loud. On a good day they could rival the best of the English choirboys. Overall the music is excellent and the quality of the singing is very high. The St. Thomas Choir is probably the best choir of men and boys in North America right now, and here's why."
One of the best compilations of hymns

"If I heard them before I became Catholic, I think I'd be at the local Anglican parish. This is arguably the best choir in the US."
My Heart, Too, Is Ready
R. E. Belfrey | Atlanta, GA United States | 01/17/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD has exceeded my expectations. Whilst I was first introduced to the genre of Anglican chant by the most esteemed Choir of Kings College, Cambridge, the young men on this album represent the United States very ably indeed. The sound quality is so that I can pick out the inspired words of the psalter without having to read along. The organ is wonderful, and particularly adroitly showcased in "Joy To the World." This is a wonderful choice, having both selections from the Psalms, and beautifuly aranged hymns, some of which, sadly, I have never heard. The music will truly have your "heart and flesh crying out for the living God."
For more wonderful Anglican Chant, try The Psalms of David, from Kings; and The Psalms of David with the Choir of St. Pauls, London."
