Description

“wonderfully fresh and immediate in sound, with no ambience that spoils the feeling of having the singer almost at one’s side… intimate and natural, sympathetic without being reverberant….all with a taste for early music, so much of which was being rediscovered at that time. And it was a good time: not so knowledgeable and experienced as the present, but more spontaneous, less doctrinaire in style” John Steane (Gramophone)
