Notes & Reviews:

"...Listeners attuned to the greater structural and aesthetic refinements of later Gallic masters such as Faure and Durufle may blanch a little at Widor's somewhat less subtle and more monumental style...But here sound and spectacle are all, and O'Donnell goes successfully for broke in a performance which has his augmented group of choristers launching bracingly full-blooded shafts of sound across the resonant spaces of their Westminster home..." ***** -Blain, Classic CD

'There can be little doubt that this release will be one of the recordings of the year and my obeisance goes to all artists involved with this outstanding production' (Soundscapes, Australia)

'This magnificent disc' (Gramophone)
