“The Choir gave a lively account of the many choruses, singing with precision and commitment. Moments of beautifully atmospheric blending of voices in the more solemn moments were contrasted with stirring outbursts.” (Classic Melbourne)

“It was clear from the outset that Maximilian Riebl will more than likely be singing the alto solos countless times in the future. Added to a beautiful tone, flexibility and the ability to sing a long phrase was a tasteful expressiveness and use of ornamentation – all of which added up to a performance well worth going out of your way to hear.” (Classic Melbourne)
