“Without trying to diminish the excellent performance of the collective under the direction of Patrick Casey, one has to emphasize the especially well sounding and beaming women’s voices. The choral jubilation during the emphatic finale did – to be taken literally with “In Dulci Jubilo” – not know any boundaries.”
