 “... Koningsberger’s innate musicality and subtle intelligence are evident in every phrase... one has only to listen to the delicate vocal colourings in "Music for a while", the skilfully realised connotations of melancholy and vanitas in "If music be the food of love" and the semantically apposite executive of the ornamentation in "I attempt from love’s sickness to fly" to realise the extent of Koningsberger’s interpretative gifts. Add to all... Jacob’s utterly sympathetic theorbo accompaniments and you have one of the best Purcell recitals to have hit the shelves in years.”

Gramophone magazine - July 2009

 

“Koningsberger’s singing is sensitive, expressive in arioso, rhythmical in measured songs. 26 delightful songs but better sampled than absorbed in one go.”  ****

 
BBC Music magazine - August 2012
