“…this performance has done more than any other I’ve heard to win me over…David Hill brings the score to life in a way that you seldom hear and his performers are fully paid up for the project so that they sing and play with full commitment. There are technical reasons for this, most notably the recorded sound which is superb. The Naxos engineers have done a great job of capturing the acoustic of the Lighthouse, picking out each line with more precision…Each line is clearly audible, even the instrumental lines, such as the harps, which could get lost in other contexts, including a live performance.”

Simon Thompson – MusicWeb International, September 2012

splendid modern sound, a thrilling choir and orchestra, and, in David Hill…a conductor no less devoted to Delius than his more celebrated predecessor”
