"I have been privileged to direct Jeff Hunt's choir on a number of fondly-remembered occasions over the years, and it is like being allowed to drive someone else's finely-tuned Rolls-Royce (or whatever is your favorite luxury car). They purr along effortlessly at high speed, negotiate the awkward corners with ease, make you feel like a better driver-and you don't even have to fill them up with fuel."

– John Rutter
