We are delighted that the Dunedin Consort's recording of Handel's Samson, featuring Joshua Ellicott (title role), Matthew Brook (Manoah) and Fflur Wyn (Philistine Woman, Virgin), has been nominated for a 2021 BBC Music Magazine Award.
Hailed as "The best Samson ever" by the publication upon its release, it received Recording of the Month and a 5 star review.
"John Butt has created the best Samson ever. He’s chosen the original 1743 version, star soloists with early-music chops and his band of top instrumentalists… As Samson, Joshua Ellicott is wonderful from his first air, which he infuses with a whispered despair to the swelling nobility of his last."
