“[on The Messiah] Tempos are lively, though never breathless, and always well judged, and ornamentation is judicious. Choruses are resilient and have an agreeable sense of joy, especially ''For unto us'', and ''All we like sheep'' which has a delectable added organ flourish and is full of rhythmic character… The soloists are all excellent, with Felicity Palmer and Helen Watts outstanding… The sound is consistently beautiful”
