Reviews

This recording of a highly attractive selection of Bennett's recent a cappella choral works and arrangements is as accomplished as one could possibly hope for from the ever-reliable BBC Singers under Paul Brough, their principal guest conductor. The opening sequence of four Christmas carols provides a perfect example of Bennett's refreshing musical language and supreme craftsmanship, and he is undaunted by tackling poems familiar to us from settings by other composers. The disc includes 'Serenades', written for the BBC Singers and which sets poems by John Skelton, and 'Four Poems of Thomas Campion', both dating from 2007. With the Singers' impeccable intonation, warm vocal blend, this CD is a must-buy for anyone interested in contemporary British choral music.
Philip Reed, Choir and Organ, 9/1/2012
