The advantage of Opera Holland Park is that one really does get a sense of shared vision, and so it is that the smaller roles were given with aplomb. The two English women, Ellen and Rose, were just as delightful visually as they were vocally (Rachel Brimley and Rosie Middleton respectively). Colin Clarke (2015)

Rachael Brimley, the soprano, was lyrical and precise in some glistening passages at the centre of the song cycle. Phil Miller (2008)
