NIMBUS ALLIANCE NI6201
The choir’s latest disc, Acis and Galatea (Handel arr Mend) has already achieved critical acclaim –
…as a delightful work in its own right this is one of the most enjoyable recordings I have heard for a long time.
MUSICWEB INTERNATIONAL (Recording of the Month)
This new HIP recording of Acis and Galatea (1829) is something of a guilty pleasure – and a sheer delight !
The great chorus, Mourn, all ye muses, is terrific with the Christ Church Cathedral Choir and the Oxford Philomusica on top form.
