  • Mozart's Mass in C minor

    …Julia Doyle’s Et Incarnatus Est was one of those spellbinding moments you live for,
    when time disappears, the Earth stops turning on its axis, and you can imagine every
    creature in the universe listening in rapt attention.

    Robert Harris The Globe and Mail, Ottowa/Quebec Edition
  • Vivaldi's La Senna Festeggiante

    Julia Doyle was a pure-toned, innocent Golden Age, singing with lightness and fleetness and exercising consistent vocal control and an impressive precision in the higher registers.
