Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This is a most elegant version of these stirring works. The chorus, clearest against the orchestra, moves with the same precision as the players, and Marriner's control of the rhythmic groupings is a delight." -- Gramophone (11/1985) "This is a most elegant version of these stirring works.
