8.572465 VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Sacred Choral Music
“There's no doubt [Vaughan Williams] would have doffed his boater to the latest recording…from Clare College….the sweeping energy and rich detail of Tim, Brown's interpretation draw out the best from his young singers, in matters musical and mystical.”
-Andrew Stewart, Classic FM Magazine, April 2010

"The singing and playing are of a high order, and congratulations go to James McVinnie for mastering the 'aeroplane' accompaniment."
-Relf Clark, Choir & Organ, May-June 2010

"This performance, lovingly moulded and well balanced in the play of solo voices and full choir, is in the best tradition."
-John Steane, Gramophone, May 2010


8.572103 WHITBOURN Luminosity
"Here's a dazzling collection of unashamedly tonal new music from the extravagantly talented James Whitbourn… [the music] glows with hypnotic brilliance, fusing powerful vocal writing with seductive Eastern influences."
-Stephen Pritchard, The Observer, 14th March 2010

"The music proves striking… in this glowingly committed performance by the Oxford chamber choir Commotio….The performance [is] superbly sympathetic."
-Terry Blain, BBC Music Magazine, May 2010

"This immediately effective music certainly gets right away from outworn Howells-derived conventions. Commotio provide excellent, fully committed performances." Choir & Organ
-Andrew Thomson, Choir & Organ, May 2010


ODE 1162-2 SCHUMANN Introduction & Allegro
"Eschenbach and Barto here make a delightful partnership."
-Jeremy Nicholas, Gramophone June issue



8.570463 KHACHATURIAN Cello Concerto
“An attractive concerto and a more complex rhapsody, finely played.”
-Duncan Druce, Gramophone, August 2010 issue

“Performed with an impeccable ear for Khachaturian’s folksy, serious-minded idiom by Dmitry Yablonsky.”
-Philip Clark, Classic FM Magazine, June  2010 issue


8.572289 Ferguson: Piano Sonata
“Raphael Terroni's playing is outstanding throughout, while Phillida Bannister's beautifully focused contralto voice and expressive artistry in Discovery are world-class.”
-Malcolm Hayes, BBC Music Magazine August issue

“First-class performances of durable repertoire that is worth hearing… a supremely enjoyable anthology overall, and not to be missed at Naxos price.”
-Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone, July issue
