Album Reviews

“A splendid collection of fine English choral music superbly sung by Jeremy Backhouse’s Vasari Singers.” BBC Music Magazine

“This disc should be a best seller and has rarely been out of my CD player!” Cathedral Music

“What you do get from the Vasari Singers is a performance that has passion and integrity in equal measure. And for that reason, and for its controlled joie do vivre, it’s a recording that bears repeated listening.” BBC Radio Three
