Notes & Reviews:

"This production has the benefit of very strong voices in Benjamin Luxon - resonant and impressive as 'The Voice of God' and David Wilson-Johnson as a somewhat put-upon 'Noye'... This CD is worth it for the big names and vast forces of Noye's Fludde alone, and the coupling makes it doubly attractive. Don't be fooled into thinking this is a souvenir from some school production with only local interest. This recording can hold its own in any catalogue, and deserves as much recognition as any around." -MusicWeb
