Notes & Reviews:

"Under Stephen Layton's direction [The Holst Singers] sing with a spellbinding sense of atmosphere and crystal-clear textures, bringing out very clearly the echoes of RVW's orchestral style...This is strongly recommended for all admirers of Vaughan Williams and fine choral work ***** -Classic CD

'The Holst Singers ... sing with a spellbinding sense of atmosphere and crystal-clear textures. Strongly recommended for all admirers of Vaughan Williams and fine choral work' (BBC Music Magazine)

'This new Vaughan Williams collection complements the Holst Singers' critically acclaimed 1993 CD of Holst partsongs (CDA66705) and is equally impressive... Masterly, but also supremely musical... The Shakespeare settings are outstanding' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Une réussite artistique exemplaire' (Répertoire, France)

'En todo momento, los cantores de Layton demuenstran un dominio total y lenguaje musical de Vaughan Williams... Un hermoso disco' (CD Compact, Spain)
