REVIEW RECORDING OF THE MONTH: Haydn: The Complete Masses and Stabat Mater

"Ann Hoyt, in particular, who sings soprano solos on most of the earlier recordings, is fully the equal of most of the much better known soloists on earlier sets. Her somewhat boy-like purity of tone and her sensitivity to the text and musical line are worth returning to over and over again."
           John Sheppard, Music Web International

“I particularly liked Ann Hoyt’s soprano in Handel’s
famous sequence of shepherds, flocks by night and
angelic proclamation.”
          The New York Times

“Ann Hoyt’s Susanna was the shining star of
this production, with her solid acting and singing.”
          St. Louis Post Dispatch

“Ann Hoyt has a voice of sylph-like shimmer and grace that
when allied with her physical attributes and comportment always
creates on stage a phosphorescent apparition of luminous beauty. 
A superb singing actress…”
        Classic 99 KFUO, St. Louis, MO


“Ann Hoyt as Dido adds another to her list of
triumphs on the Union Avenue stage.  Her voice,
silvery and clear, is perfect for this role.”
          KDHX St. Louis, MO

“She (Ms. Hoyt) is blessed with a magnificent voice, with superb
control in all ranges, from the softest whisper to the
strongest fortissimo.  Miss Hoyt is grace incarnate”
          KDHX St. Louis, MO

“Soprano Ann Hoyt was an outstanding Venus – visually,
vocally and dramatically.”
