"What can one say about the soprano Miriam Allan except that ‘every Haydn should have one’? Clearly enjoying all her numbers, she channelled an intelligent understanding of the musical idiom throughout – the very definition of unconscious competence. Every note was crafted for attack, dynamic change, timbre and ornament, such that her silvery top notes tinkled above the chorus in The marv’lous work, a summery verdant landscape was summoned in With verdure clad and Eve’s soon-to-be-shattered loving innocence came shining through in the warm rendering of O thou, for whom I am!"Creation, Haydn, St John's Smith's Square - The Whitehall Choir 2019 - Barry Creasey, musicomh.com
