Notes & Reviews:

Often compared on account of its pulsating drive and barbaric splendour with Orff's 'Carmina Burana', 'Belshazzar's Feast' is now regarded as the finest British large-scale choral work since Elgar's 'Dream of Gerontius'. "Electrifying performances which outstrip those of starry rivals... Under Daniel's taut direction, the orchestra presents Walton's kaleidoscopic scores with an invigorating freshness." - The Independent
