“we heard the best singing of the evening in Lucy Hall and Benjamin Hulett’s duet “Jetzt, Schätzchen, jetzt sind mir allein” for Marzelline and Jaquino. Both possess young, fresh and lyrical voices, with excellent diction and a real sense of engagement with the words and music. In her aria “O wär ich schon mit dir vereint” Hall excelled in applying a tasteful vibrato to a crystal clear tone.” Andrew H King, Bachtrack (May 2015)
