Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone
Drawing on a disciplined and dedicated response from his London Symphony forces, Hickox masterminds a stirring display (ideally balanced by the Couzens production team) that scales genuine heights in the 'Agnus Dei' and 'Libera me'. Both Philip Langridge and John Shirley-Quirk are at their authoritative, sensitive best - and what a joy to hear Heather Harper in the part she sang at the work's 1962 first performance.
