October 2006 – Notre Dame Choir Editions Reviewed in the Fall 2006 edition of The Choral Room
The Choral Room is a quarterly newsletter published by Spectrum Music, a music seller located in Lexington, Massachusetts. Written and edited by noted music educator, composer, and choral consultant, Marie Stulz, the newsletter features articles of interest to choral professionals, as well as reviews of new choral releases. In the Fall 2006 edition, Ms. Stultz writes of Notre Dame Choir Editions:

"These editions are absolutely spectacular -- based on solid research, with titles selected for their quality and great beauty. The scholarship demonstrated by the editor, Ralph W. Buxton, justifies the somewhat higher cost of these editions. His research and editorial commentary are valuable enough that one might consider using a less expensive edition for the singers, while using a Notre Dame edition for program notes. The entire series matches the quality and fine editing of the difficult-to-obtain Arista publications of some similar classic works."

March 2005 – Notre Dame Choir Editions Reviewed in Notes
Our entire catalog of Renaissance titles received a favorable review in the Spring 2005 issue of Notes, the quarterly journal of the Music Library Association. Donna M. Di Grazia of Pomona College concluded her detailed, just shy of fussy, review by saying the following:

"Overall, then, this is a worthy series, one that makes individual titles by Jacob Obrecht, Clemens non Papa, Heinrich Isaac, Thomas Tallis, Adrian Willaert, Orlando di Lasso, William Byrd, and several other Renaissance composers accessible, some for the first time. I hope the series will continue to add to its list of titles, and I would happily encourage their use."
