John Eliot Gardiner's recording of Brahms' Requiem, recorded in the Usher Hall at the Edinburgh International Festival 2008, has received much acclaim: it was Gramophone Magazine Choice, BBC

Radio 3's CD Review Disc of the Week, and was nominated for a Gramophone Award.

Katharine Fuge was an excellent soloist on many occasions in Gardiner's Bach Cantata Pilgrimage. In this Brahms performance, in the gorgeous fifth movement, Ihr habt nun Traurigkeit, her singing once again gives a great deal of pleasure. The sound she makes is delicate and clear and I enjoyed her performance very much

Aujourd'hui, John Eliot Gardiner préfère deux artistes de son Monteverdi Choir, voix tout aussi musiciennes que celles de solistes lyriques, mais plus fragiles, plus humbles - plus malléables, aussi, pour se modeler au plus près de la parole, du mot.                                                                                                                               Télérama

This performance of Bach's St. John Passion took place in the Kaiserdom, Königslutter on 22 March 2003, and was broadcast live on NDR Kultur.

Katharine Fuge’s account of Zerfliesse, mein Herze is heart-rending and meltingly beautiful. This is an elevated and eloquent piece of singing on her part                                              Music Web International
