Philip Greenfield
American Record Guide, March 2016

…[Britten’s] eight settings of medieval texts…are performed beautifully, …with a rich, supple sound placed at the service of the mercurial sentiments of the score. The most affecting interlude of the entire program is ‘Ye that pasen by’, Jesus’s heartrending commentary on his own death.

Of the four longer a cappella works, the stunner is the oddly titled Corpus Christi with Cat and Mouse by Peter Maxwell Davies. What a nutty tour de force this is! …The cleverness of the music makes for brilliant story-telling, but what the storyline is anybody’s guess! © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
