Notes & Reviews:

"This is the stuff of which heaven is made... Lyrita are to be commended for re-releasing these two fine performances. And it is appropriate that they are recorded back to back. Of course I do not suggest that they are listened to as such. Take one at a time, read the excellent programme notes and peruse the texts before listening. However, even a cursory study of these two works will reveal much in common in both composers' approach to life and death and the soul." -MusicWeb
