“The boys of King’s College Choir fully live up to their illustrious tradition and treble Tom Pickard in the ‘Pie Jesu’ sends shivers down the spine in the approved manner’. ‘The ‘Messe Basse’ is an absolute delight, the trebles Joshua Curtis and Adam Banwell matching their colleague in radiance of tone.’
