Reviews

“The Finchley Children’s Music Group sing with admirable clarity, accuracy and the crispest of enunciation.”

The Arts Desk

“And what about the spatial possibilities afforded by the opera-house setting? Having distance between the different groups of performers was important to Britten, but the only nod to that idea here comes when the excellent Finchley Children’s Music Group sing offstage and high up for the final pages.”

The Guardian

“The grouping of the chorus … plus the Finchley Children’s Music Group and additional child actors – is masterly in its variety and conviction.”

The Stage

“inspired singing by the chorus and by the Finchley Children’s Music Group “

The Independent

“Fine contributions came too from the Finchley Children’s Music Group”
