Reviews

Splendid singing throughout and excellent recording make this a collection to treasure

Penguin Guide (January 2009)

★★★★★ Christopher Robinson's inspired training methods make sure the boys of St John's pack a vocal punch The voluptuous John's sound, Robinson's emotional attachment to Elgar, fine musicianship and peerless engineering make this a must-have disc

Andrew Stewart, Classic FM (August 2004)
