Notes & Reviews:

"Here, all on a single generous disc, we get the best of Leonard Bernstein's choral works, beautifully performed by English forces under a renowned American maestro. Slatkin leads a fiery, inspired account; both the BBC orchestra and chorus acquit themselves admirably, as does the boychoir. Soprano Ann Murray is impressive, and Bernstein delivers her lines most effectively." - Koob, American Record Guide

Classic FM Magazine
In the Concerto the orchestral playing is attractively deep and detailed and Chandos's sound engineering nicely shines the spotlight on soloists while giving brilliant weight to the sinister instrumental groups that comment from the sidelines
