Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Part cantata, part oratorio, [this work] is imbued with the composer’s characteristic freshness and charm... Its quasi-devotional, cross-genre status demands special advocacy, and gets it … here by the up-and-coming Heras-Casado. Michael Schade, Christiane Karg, and Christina Landshammer are the persuasive soloists, while the chorus radiates belief in its pivotal 'armor of light' outburst and subsequent Bach-inspired chorale." – The Financial Times (ft.com) "Part cantata, part oratorio, [this work] is imbued with the composer’s characteristic freshness and charm...
