Review C

If there is a heaven, that's what it sounds like. The soprano voices in particular were mind blowing; pure perfection to me, breaking through the audience pre-concert mumbling like a ray of light through the stained glass windows. The final madrigals were sung from the front of the church bringing a finale so natural and perfect that felt like a boat gently pulling into shore.

Absolutely great: very clear, effective and authoritative, as well as wryly good-humoured.
