Notes & Reviews:

This re-release of Herbert Howells' Hymnus Paradisi and A Kent Yeoman's Wooing Song forms part of the new Hickox Legacy series commemorating the life and career of that great conductor. Maestro Richard Hickox's lifelong commitment to British music in general is well-known, as is his work with the challenging, intricate music of Howells. This disc displays extremes of Howells' emotional language - from the intense and powerful Hymnus to the sprightly and rather flirtatious Wooing Song - communicated masterfully by Hickox and his associates.

MusicWeb International, January 2013
The performance is extremely successful, conveying the dynamism and energy very well...There have been a number of highly recommendable recordings of Hymnus Paradisi and there's no doubt that this one is prominent among them. Hickox's years as a choral trainer held him in fine stead for those many undertakings on disc and with him he has a responsive BBC Symphony and Chorus to work with.
