BBC Music Magazine

November 2006

****

“The singing, both solo and corporate is of an high order. Tenors Simon Berridge and Mark Dobell convey the touching melancholy of Humfrey's devotional songs with tender inflexions and a just degree of expressive fervour. Elin Manahan Thomas is comparably sensitive in her heartfelt account of the fourth song. A Hymn to God the Father.”

Gramophone Magazine

November 2006

“The Sixteen gravitate primarily towards mournful works. Appropriate to the relatively small dimensions of the Chapel Royal, Harry Christophers adopts an intimate chamber style of single strings and soloists from within the choir. The performances include fine solo contributions, especially Elin Manahan Thomas's exquisite rendering of Humfrey's Hymn to God the Father.”
