    "New arrangements by Inga Davis-Rutter are one of the highlights of the evening, played flawlessly by Davis-Rutter and her 6 strong band. She gives new life to All Good Gifts and makes great use of the men’s voices in Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’." London Box Office.co.uk (David Grewcock)

    "A terrific three-piece band under Inga Davis-Rutter and Sam Spencer-Lane's witty choreography help to set the seal on one of the Union's clear-as-day hits. I wish I could see it forever." - The Stage

    "For the reduced scoring (The Immortal Hour is written for orchestra), Inga Davis-Rutter and her three musicians capture the spirit of Boughton's writing with deft ingenuity." - Classical Source

    "Under the direction of Inga Davis Rutter and her magical quartet, Goodall’s score is handled with gusto." - British Theatre.com
