Notes & Reviews:

This performance is important for the quality of the singing as well as for Enescu's impressive overall conception. The singing of both Peter Pears in the 'Benedictus' and Kathleen Ferrier in the 'Agnus Dei' is truly exceptional. The story of Kathleen Ferrier- her meteoric rise to fame and tragic early death- is now the stuff of legend, and every release of her voice on CD is a treasure to cherish. This set is of special importance to all her fans and for everyone who values great singing and conducting.
