"The audience was enchanted – and no wonder: Crowe knows how to work a room."

"Above all, though, Angel Waters showed Byrne and Nordberg at their best – revelling together in the piece’s graciousness and swagger, its generous sense of musical space."

Flora Wilson, The Guardian
 
 

"The arrangements of 17th-century French music would have been enough on their own to earn the recital a five-star review. But it was elevated into the musical stratosphere with the first-ever performance of a new work by acclaimed composer and Trinity Laban professor Errollyn Wallen."

"Crowe has a voice of exceptional clarity, range and drama, assets she showed off to full effect in her heartbreaking take on Dido’s Lament by Purcell which was a highlight of the evening."

Miles Hedley, The Greenwich Visitor
 
 
"Commentari III by Dorothée Hahne is a complex piece involving two recorders, headphones, a mobile phone and a wide range of techniques, including vocalising and a refrain for two recorders, the whole played with impressive aplomb by Charlotte Schneider."
Andrew Benson-Wilson, Early Music Reviews
