Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Christopher Hogwood directs a clean-cut, vigorous performance with an excellent cast. Emma Kirkby is at her most brilliant in the coloratura for the Angel, Patrizia Kwella sings movingly as Mary Magdalene and Carolyn Watkinson as Cleophas adopts an almost counter-tenor like tone. Ian Partridge's tenor has a heady lightness as St John, and David Thomas sings stylishly. Excellent recording."
