“…there's something oddly relentless about Hickox's attitude to tempo. The characteristic Elgarian ebb and flow, so well caught by Paul Daniel on Naxos, and so lovingly intensified by Colin Davis (LSO Live), is particularly lacking in the first two movements.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2008 ***
“Hickox's version of Andrew Payne's realization of the Third Symphony is special, which is very compelling indeed. His reading is not only marginally stronger and more dramatic than the others, but it has the advantage of superb SACD surround sound.” Penguin Guide, 2011 edition

Romantic English Choral Works by Elgar, Parry, Stanford and Vaughan Williams
Worcester Cathedral Chamber Choir, Stephen Shellard
The second release on Regent from Worcester Cathedral Chamber Choir.
Released to celebrate the centenary of the first performance of Five Mystical Songs in the 1911 Three Choirs Festival at Worcester.
This disc frames that well-loved masterpiece by Vaughan Williams with works by Elgar, Parry, and Stanford, with some rarities including Elgar’s Memorial Ode for Queen Alexandra, and three settings of O salutaris hostia.
“Elgar's Memorial Ode for Queen Alexandra of 1932, practically unknown until its recent revival, emerges under Shellard's direction as much more than an exercise in nostalgia. Choir, conductor and organist also tease out turbulent emotions from below the elegiac surface of the same composer's The Spirit of the Lord is upon me.” Classic FM Magazine, November 2011 ***
