Bachtrack:

“The Finchley Children’s Music Group showed us just how bright-eyed singing is done, and did so with nary a score in sight.”

The Times:

“…with rich vocal contributions from Katherine Broderick, Clara Mouriz and the Finchley Children’s Music Group”

Classical Source:

“The Finchley Children’s Music Group, singing from memory, excelled.”

The Guardian:

“It was entertainingly done, with delicate vocal standouts from soprano Katherine Broderick and mezzo Clara Mouriz, and the Finchley Children’s Music Group providing the shaded tones of the fairy troupe.”
