Notes and Editorial Reviews
...Herreweghe [has a] lean, lithe way with the score... If you want to experience the work at its most compelling, and can bear with the original German text, try...the intimate Herreweghe.

-- Gramophone [1/1996]


...I have also enjoyed Philippe Herreweghe’s version of Elijah on period instruments with La Chapelle Royale, Collegium Vocale Gent and Orch. des Champs Elysées. Using a German text this recording from Metz in 1993 has a pleasing cast of soloists.

-- Michael Cookson, MusicWeb International
