Notes & Reviews:
This disc most delightfully extends the small number of Schubert's part-songs that has been recorded and these beautifully sung performances, very well recorded, capture the intimate spirit of music written primarily for friendly gatherings [... ] Robert Tear sings his part with lovely tone [... ] A contralto solo part woven into Ständchen is beautifully sung by Helen Watts [... ] this lovely disc gave me intense pleasure.
Der Hirt auf dem Felsen is marvellously clean and instrumental in execution.
BBC Music Magazine, November 2012
Schubert's secular choruses are among his least-known works, so a warm welcome for these charismatic performances of music beautiful enough to make you cry.
