Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
It's actually some of the quietest music which mesmerises most - the exquisitely prayerful 'O Salutaris', an interpolated oasis of religiose restraint before the powerfully-wrought, beautifully shaped Agnun Dei in which Cherubini comes closest to the musical ambitions of his admirer Beethoven. It offers a heartfelt plea for peace, torn between the serene faith of the major key and the intruding doubt of the minor key answer. Muti's pacing is flawless again, the solo quartet and choir poised, the orchestral layering a benediction. Even the hardened non-believer will mutter a graceful 'Amen'!.

Gramophone Magazine
No conductor is quite so persuasive an interpreter of Cherubini as Riccardo Muti.
