Review

The King's Consort is starting its own record label:Vivat.It's all performed on period instruments,with gut strings and wind and brass from the era. --BBC Music Magazine

The King's Consort are set to re-enter the recording catalogue with the world's first period instrument recordings of Parry's I was glad and Jerusalem,alongside other Coronation music by Parry and his colleague Charles Villiers Stanford. --Gramophone

Their new album of British choral music,launching their new classical music recording label,VIVAT. --ClassicFM.com

For the launch CD of its new label Vivat,The King's Consort have delivered an undisputed spectacular.Together with full symphony orchestra of 19th-century period instruments,and under the directorship of founder Robert King(this is also the vocal group's 100th CD recording),they tackle canticles and anthems by Stanford and Parry in their original full and lustrous symphonic versions.Suddenly,Stanford's numerous Evening Canticles are heard to their full effect radiant,Brahmsian exultations of faith,with unmistakable hints of Wagner witnessed in the thrill of the orchestral language.Parry's music is no less exhilarating from the large-scale Coronation Te Deum and famous Blest Pair of Sirens to I Was Glad and Elgar's orchestration of Jerusalem.It's a magnificent start for a potentially exciting new label.3 February 2013. --Ken Walton, The Scotsman

Those who value the Victorian/Edwardian choral tradition will relish these fine examples of it and the stirring manner in which they are performed.4 stars. --The Telegraph
