"The Chorale get the sophisticated sound of the French just right, singing the words as if they were poetry; in ‘Trois beaux oiseaux du paradis’ the soprano Lauren Urquhart sings her solo with celestial beauty. And even though they flirt with rough going early on in ‘Ronde’, the Chorale end up quite deliciously." -Gramphone UK

In 2018, the Nashville Symphony Chorus and Orchestra released the world premiere recording of John Harbison’s REQUIEM. 

"The Nashville Symphony Chorus must also have been challenged – some of the writing seems extremely complex – but as best I can tell, given that the piece was new to me, they pass every test set by John Harbison with flying colours.” - John Quinn, MusicWeb International
