Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Gardiner secures subtler playing from his period instruments…conveying more clearly the emotional and dramatic thrust…first rate soloists have been chosen from the chorus, and the digital recording of full and well balanced…at Duo price, this is even more of a first choice."

- Penguin Guide to Compact Discs and DVDs, 2005/06 Edition
