"...Sophie Daneman is outstanding as Venus...Roderick Williams and Elin Manahan Thomas are also superb as Adonis and Cupid respectively; all three soloists have, incidentally, impeccable diction ...Under the musical direction of Kenny, the Theatre of the Ayre turns in a highly impressive performance, by turns subtle and powerful, rhythmically slick and very well balanced."

Ivan Moody - International Record Review - April 2011


"...This is a stylish performance, beautifully recorded..." ****

Richard Lawrence - Classic FM May 2011

‘Elizabeth Kenny’s meticulously prepared semi-staged production … should become a benchmark collector’s item’
