Notes & Reviews:

Classic FM Magazine, February 2012
Simon Halsey is to be congratulated for corralling massed choirs The Northern Sinfonia Choir and youth choir Quay Voices into such a uniformly warm, good-natured sound. Soloist Scarlett Courtney shows gorgeous tone and diction in Howard Goodall's take on The Lord is my Shepherd. Although placed somewhat low in the mix, the Northern Sinfonia's role should not be overlooked.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Hall One, The Sage Gateshead (12/12/2009-12/13/2009).
