...with Ceri Williams' rich golden-voiced Erda.

Like Mats Almgren, Jeni Bern (Woodbird) and Ceri Williams (Erda) prove that there is no such thing as a small part.

Theater Bonn - The Gospel According To The Other Mary - Martha, 2017

Auch der Bonner Chor und alle Solisten, die, bis auf die herausragende Altistin Ceri Williams, schon an der Londoner Aufführung beteiligt waren, zeichnen sich durch große Musikalität aus.

- Andreas Falentin, Concerti.de, 27.3.2017

Die drei Solisten, die an Statur und Stimme Affinitäten zur Gospel-Kultur aufweisen, liefern eine formidable Performance. In Sonderheit Christin-Marie Hill als Maria und Ceri Williams als Martha mit ihrem jeweils ausdrucksstarken und farbenreichen Mezzo.

- Ralf Siepmann, O-Ton online, 28.3.2017Read the article

Als Maria und Martha beeindrucken Christin-Marie Hill und Ceri Williams mit unerschöpflichen Alt-Stimmen.
