DVD Review – Let it Rock (Canada)

“…homecoming triumph of the brightly burning storytellers of yore.”


Annie Haslam Interview – UK Music Reviews

“Annie Haslam, solo artist and lead vocalist with Renaissance, chats with Kevin Cooper about the success of Northern Lights, the passing of her great friend Michael Dunford, their latest album Symphony Of Light and their forthcoming tour of the UK.”


DVD Review – Exposé (USA)

“If you liked their classic 70s material, you’ll probably enjoy this – it does heavily favor long-time favorites like “Carpet of the Sun,” “Mother Russia,” and “Running Hard,” and the newer pieces featured are very much in the same style. The selections from Grandine il Vento (2013), the last album produced before Michael Dunford’s death, come off quite well, proving the magic wasn’t gone.”


DVD Review – progarchives.com

“Renaissance score over the 2011 DVD on two counts. One, the video footage is much better shot here (though I’ll leave providing the technical justification for that comment to somebody else!) and the audio too is stunning. The audio is available in two modes – stereo and surround sound. The surround sound set up is incredible. Listening to Annie Haslam’s voice on surround can almost lull you into believing it’s the 70s. Two, the concert features three tracks from Grandine Il Vento/Symphony of Light.”
