“The music is beautifully crafted, with particularly strong echoes of Bairstow, Francis Jackson, Howells and Poulenc. A setting of ‘Ubi caritas’ in both English and Latin was the highlight for me, but all the works on the disc deserve to be discovered.”

“This is an excellent CD of compositions by Hugh Benham, organist and choir director of St Boniface, Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire, and a writer of academic and educational articles.”
Stuart Robinson, Royal School of Church Music, CMQ, July 2013

It makes for devotional listening, and will also be of interest to church choir directors looking for accessible pieces with straightforward part-writing
