Notes & Reviews:

"Sarah Connolly is here in Janet Baker territory, but her individuality means that comparisons do not arise. Simon Wright conducts a moving performance of The Music Makers, a marvellous work that has emerged from the disfavour with which it was once regarded. He takes some passages slowly but without sentimentality and the chorus's diction is exemplary. The solo mezzo part is small but crucial and is raptly sung by Connolly. In the five Sea Pictures she is deeply poetic in Sea Slumber-Song , airily whimsical and touching in Where Corals Lie and dramatic in The Swimmer (where the organ makes an exciting contribution). Recording quality is excellent." -The Sunday Telegraph
