"In the leading role as the Evangelist, Valdemar Villadsen was simply outstanding – effortless (also in the melismatic tenor arias), delicate and with cantabile richness."

- Der Westen

"A very skilful Danish tenor"

- Frankfurter Allgemeine, Jürgen Kesting

"Valdemar Villadsen has an emotionally rich sound, sustained notes, pure, warm and bright, that brings heaven to earth and stops time for a few moments. Hopefully the record companies will pick up on this man."
