There are so many magnificent moments that space does not permit comment on every section. Suffice it to say that the soloists are all in great voice, the choral work is superb and Hickox draws sublime playing from the orchestra. This CD is required listening for all lovers of English choral music.
The Delian (Delius Society)

'Richard Hickox is authoritative and alive to every dramatic and lyrical nuance, leading his superb forces and soloists in a resoundingly affirmative performance that has all the hallmarks of a new classic.'
Classic FM Magazine

'A disturbing, uplifting and revelatory spiritual and musical journey, then, presented here in all its wide range of colour by a superb quartet of soloists' and magnificent choruses and orchestra under Hickox's direction. A dazzling addition to the repertoire. More!'
International Record Review

'It's hard to imagine Quo Vadis getting a better performance than it receives here… The four soloists share a directness of approach that aptly serves Dyson's metaphysical rhetoric: elevated but not pretentious. Conductor Richard Hickox surely deserves credit for this, as he does for beautifully balanced choral work and the lustrous orchestral playing. All of this captured by Chandos in sound that's astonishingly spacious and detailed.'

'All four soloists are in superb voice, each of them strong, firm and characterful; and both choruses sing with fresh, incandescent tone' the result will delight all devotees of the English choral tradition.'

'The performance does Dyson proud: Hickox is rather good at this kind of thing, and his soloists and choruses are generally reliable' and Chandos has given them good sound' enthusiastically recommended.'
