AllMusic Review by

Sacred and choral classics are arranged with fastidious care and much consideration, with the music selection and sequence by the inimitable Ellen Holmes, who puts together three or four Hearts of Space shows per year. This is truly awe-inspiring music, with 36 total selections on the two CDs, offering generous portions of Bach and others.
