Reviews
James Whitbourn wrote his four-minute upper-voice Festival Alleluia for Farnham Youth Choir, and tremendous fun it must be to sing...The singers throw around Alleluia phrases as if excitedly tossing them into the air.

Whitbourn is a composer of sacred music who rarely fails to delight with his inventiveness. The Festival Alleluia is a four-minute romp accompanied by coruscations of piano triplets - satisfying for both singers and listeners.
