"...The Thirteen sings with striking color and richness..." Anne Midgette, The Washington Post


The Thirteen “has a tight and attractive vocal blend and excellent choral discipline.  There is a good sense of phrase and deliberate forward movement even without exaggerated or artificially imposed dynamic contrasts. Listeners interested in this repertory will not go wrong.” American Record Guide

"... The Thirteen, gave a stunning performance of music from the Tudor period at Virginia Wesleyan’s Hofheimer Theater April 10, under Matthew Robertson’s crisply spirited direction. The historically informed program, entitled Immortal Legacy–Tudor Giants, was a shining wonder from start to finish. Meticulous phasing, clear diction, superb blend and extraordinary beauty of sound were among the hallmarks of The Thirteen’s performance. I stand in awe.” M.D. Ridge on WHRO, the Norfolk, VA NPR Affiliate

"On this evidence, the Washington DC-based The Thirteen is clearly a tight-knit ensemble of accomplished soloists with a vocal signature of becoming tonal beauty." Michael Quinn, Choir & Organ

“We were grateful to kick back and let the beautiful sounds of this professional choir wash over us.” Kevin Coughlin, Morristown (NJ) Green

"Passion Transfigured... transfigures the listener." Michael Andor Brodeur, The Washington Post
