Caldara Maddalena ai piedi di Christo (Christ), Freiburger Barockorchester (April 2022) “English tenor Joshua Ellicott embodies Christ with his majestic, grounded voice. Although his participation is limited to two arias, his direct and unmysterious broadcast assures him of a remarkable presence.” - Frédérique Epin, Olyrix
Britten Nocturne, BBC SSO at the Lammermuir Festival (September 2021) “A sprightly BBC SSO under the baton of Peter Whelan combined brilliantly with a nuanced performance from Joshua Ellicott in Britten’s delicious Nocturne for tenor and orchestra… Focus in the Nocturne fell on tenor Joshua Ellicott, the unspoilt sheen of his delivery capturing the shadowy essence, but also the ecstasy and humour, of Britten’s settings of verses by Shelley and Keats among others. Perfect for the opulent church acoustics.” –Ken Walton, The Scotsman****
Handel Rodelinda, recording. English Concert. Linn CKD 658
“Against the odds, director Harry Bicket has gifted us the best ever recording of Rodelinda… As Grimoaldo, Joshua Ellicott textures his part finely. After machismo numbers, Ellicott brings to ‘Prigioniera ho l’alma in pena’ a fragility that affectingly reveals how Rodelinda’s rejection has broken his heart.” -Berta Joncus, BBC Music Magazine*****
