BROTHERS IN THE WIND
“Sarah Class’ ‘Brothers of the Wind’ is a gorgeous, lyrical work with beautiful orchestrations. It’s a proper story-telling score; and Class certainly lives up to any expectations. It’s powerful through its composition, but it’s never loud and it never rushes. A very mature and confident work that comes highly recommended.”Peter Simons, Synchrotones’ Soundtrack Reviews
“One of the most beautifully entrancing records I’ve listened to this year.”Alan Cackett, Americana, Roots, Country & Bluegrass Music

“Unity is utterly adorable…..file under CLASS”Maverick Magazine
“The score for AFRICA is as imposing as the series and as varied and beautiful as the continent, it is a soundtrack that I urge you to add to your collection, because if you do not you will be missing out on some of the most gracious and inspiring music that I have heard in a long while….”BBC Africa: Movie Music International by John Mansell
“The score for the series is as diverse and as epic as the film and the continent of Africa itself, it is full of drama, overflowing with rich and gracious themes and brimming with emotion and poignant musical moments which tug at the heartstrings, evoke concern, frustration and also have a sound that gives the viewer hope for the future of Africa.”BBC Africa : Film Music Reviews
“Class makes great use of female vocals, both choral and solo, which lends Africa an ethereal feel, as heard in ‘The Desert Victor’ and ‘Fairy Circles’. It’s a really great touch and utterly beautiful at times, especially in the heavenly vein of ‘Under The Stars’, which is frankly just amazing, especially with the inspirational string writing in its climax.”BBC Africa, Lost in the Multiplex by Charlie Brigden
“It’s hard to come up with more superlatives for this album really, it’s just that good. Magnificent, majestic, emotional, and with a powerful finale.”BBC Africa, Lost in the Multiplex by Charlie Brigde
A NEW DAWN
“This is a big talent just waiting to be discovered on the mainstream music scene”.. “this refreshing musical offering will have you wanting more.
If you want to hear an amazing new voice on the music scene without all the glamour of a Gaga or the safetynet of a five girl band, then listen to the new EP by Sarah Class out on February 18.”Somerset County Gazette
“EQUAL parts beauty, creativity and emotionally-driven talent, Sarah Class paints a beautiful picture of loves gained and lost, introducing layers of glorious creativity to songs that are easy to listen to and extremely interesting throughout. Previously a successful classical musician, Sarah makes her debut with sophistication and style that’s simply mesmerising. A New Dawn encompasses everything that’s great about female artists in today’s industry and, at the same time, establishes Sarah as a truly pioneering artist in her field. This is a release that shouldn’t be missed under any circumstances!Selby Times
“A New Dawn “This should stand time’s test, and then some.” “Sarah Class’ critically acclaimed and award winning classical compositions, which include work alongside the choral group Cantamus, can explain why much of this disc is as ethereal as it is earthy. As such it stands head and shoulders above the average, twee ‘girl and guitar’ formula now so tried and tested.”Martin Guttridge-Hewitt – Click Music
“….”A rare elegance..”……..”dreamy vocals”……it retains a fresh sensibility and is lyrically evocative through tracks including Northern Shore and A Golden Leaf Fell. A New Dawn is a charming new album, perfect for the last of the summer sun”.”Bridgewater Mercury
“Ones to Watch Sarah Class was nominated at the 2002 Brits for Best Classical Album with the vocal group Cantamus. Her new mini-album A New Dawn (Glorious Technicolour Records) is a more folk-orientated affair with strong echoes of Kirsty MacColl and Simon and Garfunkel”Choice Magazine
“ Sarah Class is one of Britain’s brightest young musical stars. Her style is both hauntingly ethereal and sensual, mingling folky influences and a powerfully romantic blend of orchestral and electronic sonorities…..”HMV Classical Reviews Magazine
“Talented composer/songwriter Sarah Class is one of Britains brightest young musical stars. At such an early age, she has already worked on a host of film and television projects, here and in the US, having been nurtured by legendry producer George Martin. Class spent her childhood soaking up a myriad of creative influences, from Mozart to John Lennon, and her work combines a unique mix of classical music and modern jazz. Look out for her latest album, Aurora..one of the most promising spring releases.”Company Magazine FACE TO WATCH Reviewer: Jamie Crick
“Here they sing a track from their new album Aurora – already seven weeks in the classical Top Five – composed by Sarah Class, one of Britain’s freshest writers, making her name in a raft of film and TV projects at home and in the USA….Expect to see the girls at next year’s Classical BRIT Awards, in serious contention with this ethereal blend of voice and rhythm.”Classic FM Magazine BRIT Award Special Edition – NEW BRITISH STARS Review: Lucy Hall
“When I first heard Cantamus “Aurora” on the radio, I couldn’t order it quick enough!. It is simply the most beautiful music that I have heard for a very long time. Certain tracks can even bring tears to my eyes. If you only want to buy one Classic Music album this year, this is it!”Reviewer: John Till
