Edward Grint - Press Reviews

  • “Edward Grint, a previous choral scholar at King’s College Cambridge, gave the Priest’s role power and conviction and his pleading tones as the Angel of Agony hinted appropriately the approaching final resolution.”
    Elgar: Dream of Gerontius - 26th June 2010
  • “In ‘Let Rolling Streams their Gladness Show’, Allsopp was joined by bass Edward Grint in one of Handel’s best duets, very pleasantly sung. Grint was full of expression and accuracy in ‘Let Envy then Conceal her Head’, Handel’s writing, Grint’s singing and the strings of Florilegium all combining to evoke the implicitly serpentine imagery of Philips’ text and its many sibilants.”
    Handel: Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne
  • “Edward Grint is a considerable talent and given the blockbuster "Why do the nations so furiously rage together", did not fail to thrill.”
    Handel: Messiah
  • “Edward Grint sang the part of Christ. A product of King’s Cambridge, he showed unfailing musicality throughout, produced nobility of sound, and his exchanges with Evangelist Andrew Kennedy were beautifully judged and always interesting.”
    Bach St John Passion, Snape Maltings
  • “... and the best aria of the evening was Edward Grint as the idiot gaoler John Styx: he sang 'When I was King of Boeotia' with grace and warmth, and the tune has stuck firmly in my head despite the fact this was the first time I've heard it. ”
