Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

The Observer
Litton's live recording is outstanding: observant of Mendelssohn's tempi, with beautifully detailed orchestral textures and lithe but robust choral work from the Danish National Vocal Ensemble and soloists Judith Howarth, Jennifer Larmore and Christoph Prégardien.

The Times
The tenor Christoph Pregardien is powerfully eloquent in the work's best section (the anguished Stricke des Todes), and the Bergen Philharmonic lilt charmingly during the opening Sinfonia.
