BBC Music Magazine

February 2010


“The performance is first-rate throughout. Natural, tractable voices create characterful images - in the Christmas Story, Else Torp an ethereal angel, Jakob Bloch Jespersen a sneering Herod. The major roles of Evangelist are well narrated, in both Historien, with a natural speech rhythm paced to match the changing moods. A disc to cherish.”

Gramophone Magazine

June 2010

“Ars Nova Copenhagen reaffirms its status as an outstanding vocal ensemble with luminous and pure choral singing. Its members also provide excellent solos...Hillier paces and shapes Schütz's music to perfection...Schütz recordings of such ardent beauty are much too rare, so this is not to be missed.”

Penguin Guide

2011 edition

“The splendid Ars Nova Copenhagen, directed by the sensitive Paul Hillier, provide here totally compelling recordings of Schutz's inspired settings of the Christmas Oratorio and the History of the Resurrection...the solo singing is very fine, especially the radiant-voiced soprano, Else Torp.”
