'The performances (and the music) are lovely, with a first-class lineup of British singers specialising in Britten's msuic. This one is difficult to pass up' (American Record Guide)

'Two irresistible discs—typically painstakingly produced and documented—and would deserve four stars if only they were there to give' (The Times)

'A feast' (The Sunday Times)

'Altogether a marvellous treat—Another Hyperion triumph' (Classic CD)

'It is more or less axiomatic now that anything Graham Johnson turns his hand to will be perfectly realised, and here it proves once again to be the case. That he is accompanying eight of the finest voices in the young and middle generations of British singers can only have helped. Hyperion supplies full texts and a recorded sound of complete fidelity. These are, moreover, well filled discs. It is plain that nothing short of a strong recommendation will do' (Fanfare, USA)
