Reviews:

“…powerful and eclectic…This 15-track album eloquently expresses Weston’s interest in exploring the limits of creativity within sacred and secular thematic elements.”
JENNIE WILLIAMS, Black Grooves

“Trevor Weston’s choral output spans the secular and the sacred with musical influences drawn from past and present to clothe texts ancient and modern in an often soft-grained luminosity. Eclectic, certainly, but beguilingly so. The organ accompanied Magnificat & Nunc dimittis owe a debt to Herbert Howells; Truth Tones blends Hildegard of Bingen’s floating vocal lines, with resonant cello accompaniment a la Morton Feldman and cantus firm us in the alto voices; the four-part Ma’at Musings pairs ancient Egyptian texts with African-tinged percussion and Hip-Hop accents; and the polyphonic Messe Ancienne and a cappella 9/11 tribute Ashes are the products of a modern, nuanced and graceful voice. These are committed performances from the [combined] forces under Julian Wachner’s direction, and excellent sound.”
MICHAEL QUINN, Choir & Organ, November/December 2017 ***
