'Much of this concert’s success was due to clear, unfussy direction by conductor Jake Barlow. His firm control over proceedings...with well-chosen tempi allowing his singers to negotiate Handel’s semiquavers with ease.'
The News, Portsmouth
'Jake sang the role [of Didymus] radiantly and with great sensitivity.'
Eastern Daily Press
'He is a natural communicator and works with empathy, authority, and immense good humour.'
Aedan Kerney MBE, Conductor and Educator
'Jake is very friendly, with a very calm teaching style...he should definitely be a new student's first choice. I would highly recommend him to anyone.'
'They [St Richard Singers] were joined by the newly-formed Noviomagus Ensemble, all under the impeccable direction of Jake Barlow, the St Richard Singers’ youthful conductor.'
'It’s no exaggeration to say his dynamism and flamboyant style have re-energised the choir in recent years and I’m sure he will be greatly missed by choir members and audience alike.'
