2008-09 OPUS prize award winner for contemporary CD of the year

As the evangelist, Lawrence Wiliford was as polished and elegant as anything one could wish for. For beauty of voice, dramatic projection, and a deep understanding of the music, Wiliford was the equal of any tenor on anyone’s favourite CDs. Colouring the words effectively and showing no apparent effort, he eloquently sang music that is vocally challenging and often very high — the perfect light tenor for the job. It was a magnificent performance.

- Kenneth Delong
Calgary Herald, 2019

Wiliford sings beautifully in what one might call the ‘Aldeburgh style.’ It’s light, clear, sensitive and every word is clearly audible…it does the music full justice.

- John Gilks
Opera Canada, 2018

One could hardly imagine a better performance than the one on this album, with Canadian tenor Lawrence Wiliford offering pitch-perfect intonation and beautiful tone.

- Paul E. Robinson
Ludwig Van Toronto, 2018

This Canadian tenor has the kind of voice that could convince rock ’n’ roll fans to give art song and even opera a fair shake. Unlike the many classically trained singers who sacrifice texts on the altar of sound, Wiliford adds to his skillfully modulated purity of tone a clarity of diction that makes what he’s singing easy to understand. So although the printed lyrics of these 19 exquisite [songs] are included, you won’t need them.

- Arsenio Orteza
WORLD Magazine, 2017

Wiliford shows here why he is one of the country's finest song interpreters.

- Rick Phillips
Opera Canada, 2014
