Notes and Editorial Reviews

Listeners wishing to approach this work for the first time, and willing to weather the original French, would be advised to turn to the extraordinarily sensitive and vibrant recording on Naxos (8.553649)...

-- Christopher Williams, FANFARE [1/2003]

-------------------------

...All the vocal soloists give theatrically involved, musically sound performances. [Borst] sings with an undulating beauty that makes up for occasional unintelligibility.... Fersen delivers a fearsomely effective rendition of the Prophetess's incantation...
