"...Med et sådant repertoire siger det næsten sig selv, at knægten kan synge mere end tilforladeligt... er man til drengestemmer i denne herlige musik, får man fuld valuta på denne cd, og Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment spiller under ledelse af Nigel Short (navnefælle til en berømt engelsk skakstormester) sprødt og slankt, hvad der klæder Aksels stemme. Og trompetsoloen i det første nummer er pragtfuld."
Kristeligt Dagblad September 2016

Norwegian boy-soprano Aksel Rykkvin has quickly built a reputation as a rare talent, combining an intelligent musicality with a beautifully resonant treble voice. On his debut recording he is accompanied by The Orchestra of the Age on Enlightenment under Nigel Short (leader of award-winning chamber choir Tenebrae), in a selection of arias by JS Bach, Handel and Mozart. Many of the arias performed are considered too technically demanding for boy singers in the present day – in particular Mozart’s Exsultate Jubilate which was composed for the castrato Venunzio Rauzzini, and several of Bach’s Cantatas which were written at a time when singers often maintained their treble voices until the ages of 16 or 17.
