Critics' Comments

The Memphis Boychoir and the Memphis Chamber Choir with their distinguished singing, and aided by sympathetic and artistic organ accompaniment, do the cause of church music in the United States and beyond a great service. Memphis has in its midst a musical jewel of great price, and this recording can only add to the cultural reputation of the city, and of sacred music in general. It deserves to be widely known and the Choir, together with their Director, are to be congratulated on an outstanding result. - George H. Guest


Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians One is tempted to say (hopefully not blasphemously) that God is gone up and He is taking you with Him. Such is the magnificence and splendor of this disc. ... John Ayer and the Memphis Boychoir and Memphis Chamber Choir have crowned a series of CDs with a tiara of the finest jewels. - Donald Kaye


The American Record Guide The Memphis Boychoir and Memphis Chamber Choir are extremely well disciplined and proficient ensembles. Precision and intonation leave nothing to be desired. - Gatens
