'The surround dimension adds enormously to the focus and involvement, so that in the War Requiem Brittens' layering of the musicians' is as compelling in the listening room as it is at a concert.'
Gramophone

'Drawing on a disciplined and dedicated response from his London Symphony forces, Hickox masterminds a stirring display (ideally balanced by the Couzens production team) that scales genuine heights in the 'Agnus Dei' and 'Libera me'. Both Philip Langridge and John Shirley-Quirk are at their authoritative, sensitive best - and what a joy to hear Heather Harper in the part she sang at the work's 1962 first performance.'
Gramophone
