Notes & Reviews:

"The contribution of the solo singers on this disc belongs more to the 19th century than to the 18th, which is possibly what Berlioz would have wanted. That's to say, all three voice are dramatic in size and style. There's some spreading at the top of all three above 'mezzo forte', but in giving their all they are merely taking a cue from Berlioz's orchestra which, under Casadesus's firm direction, miraculously already sounds like the Berlioz we know." - Roger Nichols, Gramophone
