Choir & Organ – Choir Recording – Mater Christi: Marian Motets
“This enterprising CD from John Keys and the Choir of St Mary the Virgin, Nottingham, offers a selection of over 400 years of Marian motets, from Lassus to Tavener and Pärt. It provides a suitable showcase for the choir’s versatility, whose warm, generous and well-disciplined sound is finely moulded by Keys… A thoroughly enjoyable and well-varied programme.”

Nottingham Evening Post – Bach’s St John Passion
“St Mary’s Choir… brought out the solemnity, emotion and drama of Bach’s retelling of the Passion narrative… Sensitivity to the text was always to the fore, in the rich choral textures as well as in the fine solo interpretations by members of the Choir.”

Nottingham Evening Post – Handel’s Te Deum
“Energetic, committed singing brought out the prevailing mood of celebration, juxtaposed effectively with more reflective sections”

Nottingham Evening Post – Monteverdi’s Vespers
“Yesterday’s performance by the Choir of St Mary’s will be remembered for its dancing exhilaration, as well as glowing splendour”

Nottingham Evening Post – Mozart’s Requiem
“Whether expressing a tender lament or dramatic foreboding, the voices were skilfully balanced and blended”

Church Times – Biber’s Missa Salisburgensis
“A superbly motivated performance, utterly true to the work: an hour of exhilaration”

The Times – Biber’s Missa Salisburgensis
“Vibrantly resuscitated……an heroic effort”

Nottingham Evening Post – John Sheppard 450th Anniversary Concert
“The pauses in this richly woven music were as beautifully judged as the notes, making it an experience beyond time and space.”
