"This is an inspired exploration of the Resurrection story. A Lebanese singer takes the role of the narrator, his eastern inflections uniting Byzantine and Gregorian chants." ****

"This superb piano-duo team brings wonderful delicacy and finesse to Rachmaninov. The Six Morceaux are particularly sensitively done." ****

"Haydn symphonies from two different periods - Sturm und Drang and 'Paris' are neatly bisected by Mozart's Third Violin Concerto, composed between the two. Sprightly playing." ****

"...The disc's title work, Headlong (2007) offers another splendidly original sound-world, combining E flat clarinet and square waves, a 'deliberately simple' electronic sound that Fox deploys to evoke something of a 'scientific experiment'. The effect, like to much of Fox's music here, is utterly intriguing, and brought vividly to life by Roche's controlled but expressive performance."

"... Paul Hillier directs alert, scrupulously polished performances, and the church acoustic is excellently harnessed by engineer Preben Iwan, producing sound that is warm yet not over-resonant."

"... With her rich palette of tone and colour, Dobbin knows how to communicate tect and music while Iain Burnsidels accompaniments are beautifully managed. Both voice and piano are finely captured and well balanced."

"Black is only one of the myriad colours on this inventive and absorbing collection... Stéphany is utterly entrancing, savouring each syllable so that their characterisation of each song builds wonderfully from the text. The Labyrinth Ensemble proves an ideal partner throughout with its wide range of timbres and natural pacing, the interlude of Ravel's Introduction et Allegro being among the finest on disc."

"...Here is a choir in which all the elements are held in perfect equilibrium. Patrick Allies ponders every note before moulding lines whose suppleness in turn coalesce into a breathing, organic whole. He ferments vigour, urgency and narrative sweep in the Mass's begetting motet, relishes the textural variety of the Kyrie and keeps the Gloria bowling resolutely along until the 'Qui tollis' necessitates a change of gear... By way of soaring postscript. Praetorius's Surrexit pastor bonus rounds off a beautifully recorded, artistocratically executed disc. Siglo de Oro has struck gold!"
