There is probably no one better to present the achievements of British choral music than Stephen Layton, the Musical Director of the Trinity College in Cambridge and the Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the City of London Sinfonia. After one of his concerts, a reviewer for the newspaper The Oxford Times wrote that the performance was “marked by a bright, clear sound, that was strictly disciplined under the authoritative leadership of Stephen Layton – it was a lesson in intelligent phrasing, faultless diction and perfect timing”.
