Penguin Guide, January 2009

This Naxos disc is the first commercial recording of the St Bride’s Church Choir, and very impressive it is, for with crisp, clear ensemble and fresh tone from boyish-sounding sopranos they give warmly sympathetic performances of these fine Bruckner motets, an excellent selection covering most of the best known. The recording is full and vivid, set against a helpful church acoustic which does not obscure detail.

American Record Guide

"I can only say that this recording has revealed an aspect of the composer I thought I really understood, but didn't entirely, and I am grateful (and richer) for what it has taught me. You will be too, I suspect, and it won't cost you much. It is the best thing I have found on Naxos"


"These are direct, unpretentious performances sensitively sung and beautifully recorded in a suitably warm acoustic"


"The whole enterprise adds up to a triumph for Naxos; for the Choir of St Bride's Church; most importantly, for Bruckner"
