The Guardian Best
In The Dark is named in The Guardian Best Classical Albums list 2012. We are overjoyed to receive this news! Thanks to everyone who made In The Dark so successful, not least our committed and supportive followers. It’s amazing what can happen in 12 months. Here's to an equally brilliant 2013
IN THE DARK
The critically acclaimed, chart-topping album.
A triumphant review for In The Dark from the International Record Review.
“The Renaissance polyphony is exceptionally well done... This is singing that brings great pleasure.”
4 STARS for In The Dark from Choir & Organ Magazine
“The alchemical symbol for platinum is a union of silver and gold and that is the quality of the Consort’s singing, naturally bright even in solemn context, but richly toned and weighty where required.”
5 STARS for In The Dark at Kings Place from Bachtrack, written by Fran Wilson:
“Their voices float, soar, and whisper, while creating both an exquisite intimacy and an expansive grandeur, as the text demands...their scrupulous attention to detail, and immaculate intonation and articulation made this a performance of spine-tingling beauty and conviction.”
We are very proud to announce that In The Dark, the critically acclaimed debut album by Platinum Consort and Scott Inglis-Kidger, was Album of the Weekend on Classic FM, 11th and 12th August 2012. Presenter Anne Marie-Minhall described In The Dark as "one of the best albums I've heard all year."
"Hugely impressive debut...perfectly captured in this meticulously recorded download...Richard Bates knows how to raise the hairs on the back of the neck"
THE OBSERVER, 2012
"Pristine tonal balance and pure tuning...intimate music-making...sensitively sung...vigorously projected"
BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE, 2012
