'Not having access to a programme (a long story) I wasn't aware of the singer's identity until after the performance, so I assumed that Gubbay had recruited a rising star from lands afar and was preparing to beg opera companies to take note. Instead the message is far simpler: why is Essex-born James Edwards not already a hot international property? His plangent timbre, at once romantic and heroic, is a rare enough beast and makes him the ideal Italianate tenor.'
