Notes & Reviews:
This disc forms part of Chandos' ongoing Richard Hickox legacy series. The re-release features Rossini's Stabat Mater, performed by Richard Hickox and the City of London Sinfonia. They are joined by the London Symphony Orchestra Chorus and four excellent soloists: Helen Field, Della Jones, Arthur Davies and Roderick Earle.
MusicWeb International, 6th August 2013
Hickox isn't ashamed of the sorrow that hangs over the subject material. He whips the orchestra and chorus into an intense frenzy in the Inflammatus...Elsewhere, though, the performance is a little 'standard.
