New release: Taverner Consort: L'Orfeo (Avie)
...with Charles Daniels and Faye Newton superb as Orfeo and Euridice, and sensual singing and playing, this is the most beguiling Monteverdi opera recording for years. ***** (The Times)
Faye Newton brings passion and an evocative fragility to Euridice, interacting poignantly with her Orfeo and making much of her character's pathos. (Voix des Arts)
Faye Newton's Eurydice is particularly effective in her final farewell, with its weird-and-weirder chromatic lines. (Classics Today)
