A small sample of Jeremy’s reviews…

“A most stimulating collection of music and it is hard to imagine that it could be performed better than by Jeremy Backhouse and his superb choir.” Music Web International

“The conducting of Jeremy Backhouse is spirited and responsive to the many moods of the piece. Clearly he has prepared his singers with scrupulous thoroughness.” MusicWeb

“Jeremy Backhouse’s excellent Vasari Singers performed it not just accurately, but with bags of heart and soul as well. A sincere, intelligent and admirably unsensational meditation on the darkness at the heart of man. The Cloud of Unknowing deserves a concert life beyond this moving performance.” The Times

“What’s most impressive is the extraordinarily careful pacing with which Jeremy Backhouse infuses Vaughan Williams’s Mass in G minor … Backhouse manages to bring it to life while also leaving its deliberately archaic style intact.” Jeremy Summerley, BBC Radio 3

“Jeremy Backhouse produces a performance that is compelling in its sense of line, with the climaxes suitably expansive.” Organist

“There’s no question about the care and sensitivity of Jeremy Backhouse’s approach with his excellent Vasari Singers … not only is it a stunning display of beautifully measured and controlled a cappella singing, but it reaches the very heart of these deeply moving works.” Gramophone
