Notes & Reviews:

"Agnew's heart-on-sleeve approach is not always beautiful, but it never leaves good taste behind, and in this he is well matched by his colleagues. William Christie's direction shows its customary sure dramatic touch , and the result-not for the first time for these artists-is a performance which seems unlikely to be bettered." -Gramophone
