Notes & Reviews:

"...No praise can be too high for the marvelously nimble and extremely well-focused contribution of the Monteverdi Choir...or the Philharmonia's superbly disciplined response throughout...Gardiner's new version can hold its own against all-comers and should give much pleasure to seasoned Brittenites. Both a cappella fill-ups are also a treat...Much recommended." -AA, Gramophone
