‘Beuron, probably today’s finest lyric tenor, gives the performance an essential idiomatic core in his narration … [Tenebrae are] dramatically alert and glowing as stained glass, the angelic messages skin-pricklingly ethereal.” (BBC Music Magazine) “[Sir Colin’s] revisitation of this truly classic score is utterly and totally compelling.’ (International Record Review)
