“The choir is renowned for its committed and musicianly singing, and we hear them here in superb form……. (they) make seemingly light work of the many challenges presented. “
Organist’s Review

“The Exon Singers…….  have excellent tone quality and intonation, and they make each work sound as though it had been written expressly for them”
Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians
