Kate Symonds-Joy with Solomon's Knot - reviews

Some wonderful reviews of Kate Symonds-Joy's performance of Bach's B minor Mass (from memory) with Jonathan Sells' Solomon's Knot: - also with Alex Ashworth:

The TelegraphThe difference this made in terms of sheer expressivity was profound. In the most intimate moment in the whole Mass, the Agnus Dei, one felt mezzo-soprano Kate Symonds-Joy communicating the deep pathos of the words with complete emotional nakedness."  - one of Ivan Hewitt's 10 best classical concerts in December

Classical Source: "Being a collective there were no stars, the ten singers sharing solo honours, so it is almost invidious to single anyone but perhaps it is only fair inter alia to mention Kate Symonds-Joy in the final heart-stopping ‘Agnus dei’, Sells himself in the lilting ‘Et in spiritum sanctum’ and the imposing Alex Ashworth in the ‘Quoniam’."

Planet Hugill: "Alex Ashworth’s ‘Quoniam’, duetting with Kathryn Zeverbergen on horn, was full of awe. Jonny Sells’ ‘Et in unum spiritum sanctam’ tender and mellifluous and Kate Symonds-Joy’s ‘Agnus Dei’ made time stand still."
