Notes & Reviews:

"Gritton's fearless and star-bright soprano waved the flags of the nations, and with Gerald Finley, finally hoisted the anchor to set free the voyaging soul." - Hilary Finch, The Times. "The chorus was on rousing form throughout and soon swung into the undulating foam with the LSO and Hickox in equally vigorous pursuit. The excellent baritone soloist Gerald Finley sounded a note of awestruck wonder in On the Beach at Night Alone, while soprano Susan Gritton soared radiantly in the expansive outer movements. " - Barry Millington, Evening Standard. "the account of "A Sea Symphony" was little short of a triumph." - Richard Whitehouse
