Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, May 2012
Ashkenazy conducts with heaps of spirit, tingling drama and red-blooded commitment to the cause, and he draws an unstintingly fresh and laudably disciplined response from his massed cohorts...The coupling...has to be one of the most communicative accounts of Elgar's masterpiece to have come my way in recent years.

MusicWeb International, June 2012
The chorus are well trained and disciplined although they are not as crisp or characterful as some...Worth hearing for a magnificent Angel but thereafter only fitfully engaging.
