The Philharmonia Chorus made Zerlina and Masetto's friends suitably charming, whilst being dark-voice demons at the end.

Peter Reed,

The Philharmonia Chorus made a magically hushed entry
John Allison, The Telegraph

The skilfully controlled quiet entry of the Philharmonia Chorus, very hushed singing by many voices, when it is done as well as this, always creates a special moment.
Barry Creasy,

Jurowski led a performance that was remarkably detailed, totally involving, and in the finale positively cataclysmic. The Philharmonia Chorus sang with highly charged fervour.
Richard Fairman, Financial Times

John Powell

John Powell - A Prussian Requiem - World Première
Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by José; Serebrier

Powell was honoured here by a premiere that could surely not have been improved upon. The Philharmonia Chorus was excellent, responding to a composer who writes gratefully and knowingly for voices.
