Reviews

A disturbing, uplifting and revelatory spiritual and musical journey presented here in all its wide range of colour by a superb quartet of soloists (of whom it must be said that Philip Langridge and Roderick Williams are absolutely outstanding), and magnificent choruses and orchestra under Hickox’s committed direction. A dazzling addition to the repertoire. More!
Ivan Moody, International Record Review, 8/1/2003

"I’ve made a speciality of rediscovering what I feel is unjustly neglected British music. It’s enormous fun, to bring pieces to life that have been forgotten - and a great challenge...It’s a very atmospheric piece, very well constructed, very melodic, and the orchestration is expert...It’s like a symphony really: each movement has a very different character but I think it adds up to a unified whole."
Richard Hickox, Gramophone Magazine, 6/1/2003
