(Mass for 5 Voices) “the serenity of the King’s account, with its long flowing paragraphs, remains very appealing..Under Willcocks, there is an inevitability of phrasing and effortless control of sonority and dynamics that completely capture the music’s spiritual and e motional feeling”(Gibbons) “the collection is imaginatively chosen…Gibbons is a major musical personality” (Penguin Guide 3 stars)
