Will Todd: Mass in Blue – Tempo

The riveting new CD of Mass in Blue brought out by Vasari Singers recorded in the relatively sharp acoustics of The Warehouse, SE1…

…superb playing capped only by the Vasari Singers’ final exultant “credo” outburst…

…due credit must go to the Vasari Singers’ conductor Jeremy Backhouse for his masterful command of general ensemble across an amazing fusion of jazz/ classical styles, not to mention the tricky cross rhythms throughout…

…The Mass in Blue recording really amazed me with its sheer clarity of sound, superb pace and impact in all respects. This work has now achieved full stature, I feel. Will Todd, one of Britain’s most talented young composers.
