Notes & Reviews:

"The first thing that is interesting about this oratorio is that it is in Latin. The second interesting thing is that all the roles and the choral parts are written for female voices. The opening Sinfonia is a fine piece of orchestral writing, and the concluding chorus is a real zinger. No neglected masterpiece, but a quite enjoyable score, worthy of revival. The soloists here are, if not dazzling, thoroughly reliable and satisfying. The provincial orchestra plays with fine confidence, and the women's chorus is part of an ensemble with a mission." Barker, American Record Guide
