SUNDAY TIMES CLASSICAL CD OF THE WEEK
"Prepare the sand buckets: the opening of Handel’s Dettingen Te Deum is incendiary. Trinity College Choir, the Academy of Ancient Music and the conductor, Layton, deal brilliantly with the reflective moments in a setting written to celebrate George II’s victory over the French in 1743."
"Without rival. Stephen Layton directs the distinctive and well-balanced mixed-voice Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge … in readings that are full of vigour and rhythmic bite."
International Record Review
"If you’re still to be persuaded by the Dettingen, this is the performance to do it."
