'Alto Rebecca Leggett showed a beautifully modulated,
warm alto voice, singing with a nice evenness of tone
and a lovely calmness in the lullaby, 'Schlafe, mein Liebster'...'
'Mezzo-soprano Rebecca Leggett...it was thrilling to see and hear a fine career blossoming before one's eyes and ears.'
'Ralph Allwood obtains a vivid, rich blend from his 27 Greenwichian voices, eight of whom do splendid service as soloists, most notably Rebecca Leggett'
'...one or two individuals stood out, above all Rebecca Leggett, who sang the Cantor's lines in William Smith's Responses with touching grace and beauty.'
