Review by John C
Our Choir, Orchestra and Wintley Phipps, Guest Soloist, presented SAVIOUR twice. It is by far one of my top favorites from 41 years as minister of music. The music is outstanding, exciting, spiritually uplifting and well worth the effort to prepare. Our choir loved if and overwhelming, asked after our first presentation, that we sing it again.
My wife and I love it so much that we always include the original CD in our list of CD.s to listen to when traveling on trips in the car. We worship our Saviour anew each time.

Review by Pastor Gary
I've been a Pastoral Musician for 34 years now. Done many, many cantatas and anthems. But this is, bar none, the greatest and most moving "sung story" I've ever come across. It is absolutely stunning and moves me every time I hear it.
