Notes & Reviews:
"When the dramatic cantata, 'The Spectre's Bride', stands out among Dvorak's choral works for its vigour, it is sad that it is not more widely appreciated. Commissioned by the Birmingham Festival and performed there an August 1885, it is so different from the deeply meditative religious works popular in Victorian times, not least Dvorak's own 'Stabat Mater'." - Edward Greenfield, Gramophone
