'Eugene Asti plays with a refreshingly light touch and a lively sense of rhythm' (Gramophone)

‘Hyperion’s series of Mendelssohn’s neglected vocal pieces continues to spread enchantment, thanks in part to young British talent. Katherine Broderick and Hannah Morrison, wonderfully clear and expressive sopranos, top the line-up gathered by Eugene Asti … genius is frequent and Mendelssohn’s charm almost constant’ (The Independent)
