Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Salonen offers some 17 numbers in all, all those included in the suites plus various other shorter pieces. The orchestral playing is excellent, the style idiomatic and anyone investing in this collection with Barbara Hendricks and the Oslo Philharmonic Chorus is unlikely to be disappointed. The recording is of very good quality."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition]

"The recording quality is pleasantly warm and homogenious. The orchestral playing is first class, as is the choral singing, while Barbara Hendricks sings with distinction."

-- Gramophone [6/1989]
