Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The excellent sense of style, the sovereign mechanical mastery and graphically clear instrumental sound were impressive, right from the beginning." - Helsingin Sanomat

"The musicians of Quink, a splendid vocal quintet from The Netherlands, gave a nice sampling of 16th century madrigals ... with a delightful blend of joy and despair." - The Washington Post

"Quink tackled its most substantial offering, Benjamin Britten’s “Hymn to St. Cecilia”, with care and sensitivity, each poignant phrase more doleful than the last. Its subtle, delicate tonal shifts were impeccably executed." The Birmingham News

"The singers showed impressive understanding of one another's tone
Read more colours and demonstrated superior ensemble work."- The Strait Times
