The choir’s CD Slava ! has received glowing reviews including in the USA (Amercian Record Guide: “this choir is wonderful and deserves the accolades showered on it… they display a freshness and rhythmic alacrity that is uncommon.”) and Great Britain (Organists’ Review: “A thoroughly engaging and uplifting recording in every way. If I could give this six stars, I would!”)
The choir’s CD Noël Français has received 5 Diapasons in France from Diapason Magazine, who described the choir as the “revelation of the Maîtrise world of recent years” and four stars in the BBC Music Magazine, who called it an “utter pleasure”. The CD was also one of the ‘essential releases’ of the week in the Sunday Times and the featured CD for the programme ‘Sacrées Musiques’ on France Musique.
