Notes & Reviews:

"The merits of Goodall's 'Ring' have been well rehearsed. Nowhere is his grasp of the musical architecture surer than in the vast spans of ' Twilight of the Gods,' while orchestral textures are as ravishing as ever. Alberto Remedios and the late, lamented Rita Hunter lead a dependable cast." ***** -BBC Music

The Guardian
Anyone collecting the cycle in its latest incarnation won't need any more encouragement to complete their set, for the shining virtues of the previous installments are preserved in Twilight of the Gods'.
