Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Of the soloists, I am most impressed with countertenor Daniel Taylor for purity and refinement of tone. He sings all of the alto solos. In some other recordings they are divided between a countertenor and a mezzosoprano. I would describe the other soloists as oratorio singers. Tenor Tom Randle uses more vibrato than I would like in sustained solos like 'Comfort ye'. Sumner Thompson has a bright baritone sound rather than a dark bass tone. He fares better in the warlike ferocity of 'Why do the nations'. There is no question that this is a technically accomplished performance.
