He controls everything with the surest of touches right up until a deeply moving account of the final bars, and his orchestra are with him every second of the way, playing with sensitivity and feeling, as well as an impressive delicacy of timbre' (Gramophone)» More

'Recordings of Stanford’s great choral anthems are not short on the ground, but if any choir has justification to return to them it’s Trinity Cambridge … by taking the music seriously, treating it with respect but not reverence, [Layton] gives it a freshness calculated to disarm even the staunchest of musical non-believers' (Gramophone)» More
