What the critics say

Michael Kennedy for The Telegraph 2 November 1996

Songs, and what songs. John McGlinn conducts – who better? – and the singers include Thomas Hampson, Jerry Hadley, Elizabeth Futral, Simon Keenlyside and others.Need I say more, except to urge you to hear Hampson sing It Never Was You if you want to be persuaded to buy this entertaining disc?
