8.570452 Karlowicz: Symphonic Poems
“Antoni Wit lovingly shapes the music, a mixture of grand gestures and memorable themes, and brings out all the colour of Karlowicz’s luminous orchestral writing.”
-Review in The Daily Telegraph 2 August by Matthew Rye

“The full-blooded performances under Antoni Wit leave no room for doubt.”
-Review in The Guardian 1 August 2008 by Andrew Clements

8.557924 Duruflé: Organ Music
- 3 STARS David Hart, Birmingham Post, 18 August 2008

8.570541 Elgar: Part Songs
“This impressive album brings together a variety of music; his most popular part-song, ‘My Love Dwelt In A Northern Land’, the somewhat weird ‘Owls (An Epitaph)’, the sprightly and somber side by side. The Cambridge University Chamber Choir under Christopher Robinson give a coloured, tonally pure performance of delightfully composed music.”
