"The Hollywood Master Chorale is one of the little treasures of Greater Los Angeles. I admire their plucky spirit, taking on major works such as the Charpentier Christmas Mass, Randall Thompson's Testament of Freedom, and the less familiar choral works of Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn, all of which I heard with great pleasure. Their conductor is expert at balancing her voices with the accompaniment so that each component plays its part relative to the other with proper attention to clarity and purposefulness. I also have to admire how much, and how enthusiastically, the HMC goes out into the community to entertain, to inspire, and to give heart to audiences, many of whom, I would venture to guess, probably are not regular concertgoers. Also, their repertoire is varied enough that no two concerts are anything alike, except in the care and devotion obviously poured into their preparation and presentation. This is a group that maximizes its resources and does its job well."
