Notes and Editorial Reviews

Giulini treats the work with a protoVerdian power... The Philharmonia Chorus, who are given the lovely "Quando corpus morietur", are predictably fine. A rapt sotto voce entry by the tenors near the start sets the style of the performance, and the supple dynamics and mellow colourings are a delight in the unaccompanied items. The finale is properly fiery and grand...

-- Gramophone [6/1982]

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

There's enough good solo and choral work here to make the performance highly recommendable.
