'Calming the Tempest features tenor Joseph Doody, whose singing is the undoubted highlight of this concert...
He demonstrates a superb technique, intelligently used: for example, his diminuendos on sustained notes in
‘Full Fathom Five’ are effortlessly yet beautifully managed, his diction is crystal clear and his singing throughout has a very high level of communication. This is a singer to be watched. '
