Notes & Reviews:

"The chorus is excellent and the orchestral detail has the usual light Godfrey touch... the production was given added panache by introducing the Grenadier Guards band into the March of the Peers, with spectacular effect... The remastering is very successful, the sound bright but with an admirable acoustic ambience which allows every word to project clearly." -The Penguin Guide to Opera on CD
