Notes & Reviews:

"Dutoit's performance of Berlioz's oratorio is warm and nicely paced, with an excellent team of soloists. The tempos are perhaps a little faster than average, but they signify neither haste nor any ill-advised desire to whip things up. The most famous segment, the 'Chorus of Shepherds', is fairly quick, but doesn't lose its languid, devotional quality." - Althouse, ARG
