Reviews

'It's a delightful disc … if there was a 'Critics' Fancy' it would be there sure enough' (Gramophone)

'This is a delightfully nostalgic trip through English part-singing from the first half of the 20th century. The programme is deftly chosen and Laudibus give heart-warming accounts' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Bright, youthful choir timbre, affectionate yet staunch renditions, and superior sound from the Hyperion engineers. Recommend you buy on sight. Repeat, buy on sight' (American Record Guide)

'Phrasing, diction, internal balance and attention to detail, all captured in a warm acoustic, contribute towards superb readings of Orpheus favourites' (Classic FM Magazine)
