“A crystal stream of pure, limpid soprano sound”: Mhairi Lawson’s Galatea

19 February 2009

Mhairi Lawson’s recent performance as Galatea (Acis and Galatea) at the Wigmore Hall, London for the Gabrieli Consort under Paul McCreesh has attracted excellent reviews: Hugh Canning (The Sunday Times) commends her “...crystal stream of pure, limpid soprano sound…”, and Hilary Finch (The Times) writes that “…hers was the very epitome of sweet English song”.

Mhairi Lawson will perform Iphis in Handel’s Jephtha for the Gabrieli Consort at the Barbican Hall and in Paris this June, and she will also be singing Dorinda in Orlando at the Buxton Festival this July. She sings the soprano solos in Messiah with the Academy of Ancient Music in December.
