"But cut to a riff on Chick Corea's take on the Rodrigo Aranjuez theme and we're into clever improvisation with multiple variations ... intrigued by a citrus twist on Dido's Lament ... beatboxer Shlomo earns his rent in a Bach finale and the whole sounds edgy and almost cool"
London Evening Standard

"Their precision is awesome, their technique impeccable"
Classic FM Magazine

"This is a work of genius from conception to delivery ... The current incarnation are certainly making it funky now and are bringing it right into the 21st century"
The Hit Sheet

"Added to the mix this time is vocal percussion where all the sounds come from the voice or parts of the body - it's extraordinary"
Choir and Organ
