    "This is one of the most alluring recitals of its kind that has come my way for a very long time"
    BBC Music Magazine, May 2007, *****/*****

    " Andrew Manze's luscious, full-bodied conducting of The English Concert provides a wonderful cushion for Padmore's exquisite sound, and the title track, a pastoral duet (with soprano Lucy Crowe) from L'Allegro, Il Penseroso, Ed Il Moderato, is a delight." Warwick Thompson, London Metro 30/3

    "This Handel collection shows the tenor Mark Padmore at his considerable best, the voice mellifluous, smooth and in impeccable physical order, heart and mind precisely tuned to whatever demands the composer’s work places on them. The music ranges wide, from the furious to the seraphic, the tragic to the joyful... But the highlight is “Waft her, angels”, from Jephtha, which in this artfully simple performance seems the most touching music ever." Stephen Petitt, The Sunday Times 1st April 07

    "Mark Padmore’s recital of Handel arias concludes with, and takes its name from, a ravishing duet from L’Allegro. Sung with Lucy Crowe, and accompanied with great sensitivity and subtlety by The English Consort under Andrew Manze, this radiant hymn to reason is an apt motto for a singer whose ability to marry feeling and thought is unparalleled. A fascinating collection that makes one long for the second volume." Anna Picard, 5*****, The Independent on Sunday, 15th April 2007
