Notes & Reviews:

"...of all the stereo recordings of the opera, its the one that most closely approximates authentic French style...Simoneau remains the most irreplaceable of these singers...His legato, control of dynamics, and elocution were just perfect...The performance is more complete than was the norm in 1963...The Vienna Opera Chorus and Festival Orchestra...are adequate if not first-class...if I were forced to live with this [recording] alone, I wouldn't complain." -Lucano, ARG
