GRAMOPHONE CRITICS' CHOICE
PREMIO INTERNAZIONALE DEL DISCO ANTONIO VIVALDI (ITALY)
DIAPASON D'OR

'Very special indeed… The ebullient notes come bouncing off the page and just when it seems that everyone is giving their stupendous all, Robert King manages to squeeze a little extra. A Dixit Dominus to sweep you off your feet. Volume 1 is going to be a hard act to follow' (Classic CD)

'The production values on this disc could hardly be bettered. I don't know what Hyperion is feeding their recording equipment but these are some contented cows and they produce pure Devonshire cream. This is deep sound, the kind the listener practically feels he can reach out and touch. There is scarcely a church or concert hall anywhere in the world with an ambience this sensual … One of the finest discs to have come my way this year. Look for this one on my year-end Want list. But don't wait till December, buy it now' (Fanfare, USA)

‘Lustrous, immaculate performances’ (The New Yorker, USA)
