Hyperion’s recent release of Bach’s Christmas Oratorio has been named ‘Album of the Week’ by Classic FM. Reviewed on the ‘New Releases Show’, the recording features bass-baritone Matthew Brook who sings alongside the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment directed by Stephen Layton. Described on the show as a recording which “you can’t go wrong with” (David Mellor), Matthew’s performance has been highly praised:
“Matthew Brook’s resplendent all-guns-blazing ‘Grosser Herr’.” – Paul Riley, BBC Music Magazine
“I was most impressed with the soloists, particularly Matthew Brook’s resonant bass.” – Graham Lock, Early Music Magazine
“Matthew Brook’s arias have a most enjoyable vigour.” - Carl Rosman, International Record Review
