“There's a clarity to [his voice]. It just rings very naturally. It's not hard, it's not forced, it just speaks very naturally, like an instrument. [...] clarion-like voice coming from Aksel, and very easy delivery. He's clearly been very well trained in all vocal and choral habits. He's only twelve, but he has a very instinctive and innate sense of musicianship. So with the slightest gesture I give him for a particular phrase, he will naturally respond. [...] It means we can work at a very quick pace. Even his vocal stamina - he's been absolutely on it all the way through, which is fabulous."
