Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Here with New Zealand forces, including the brilliant professional chamber choir, Tower Voices, we have the longest of Hummel’s five Masses in coupling with an electrifying setting of the Te Deum. Both were written in 1806, and one is constantly reminded that this was the period of the Napoleonic wars, when each of these works so often features martial music with fanfares, trumpets and drums. Unlike most Anglican settings, this Te Deum ends on a grand fortissimo. A thrilling issue, all the more recommendable at super-bargain price.

Review By Richard Wigmore,The Daily Telegraph (Australia),March 2004

"The New Zealand choir and orchestra do Hummel proud. Celebratory movements have a fine, ringing impetus, while Uwe Grodd shapes the more reflective sections with tenderness. A word, too, for the soloists in the "Sanctus" and "Benedictus", led by the shining soprano of Patricia Wright."
