'Why so little, and so under-performed? These are the questions begged by this overdue survey of Maw’s choral music, covering a 32 year span. Regenerative and Romantic, his music aches for a tonality lost that Britten, Vaughan Williams and Berkeley also felt keenly. “Ringleted youth of my love”, “Swete Jesu”, “One foot in Eden still I stand”: these should be amongst the set pieces of English choral music, and I’d be delighted if this disc nudged them nearer this position…More Maw, say I.'
BBC Music Magazine (William Whitehead), June 2007
