Notes & Reviews:

"Joan and the Bells is a dramatic cantata in three movements that lasts about 21 never-boring minutes. The two outer movements depict Joan's judgment and martyrdom (leading to a very powerful closing "transfiguration"), while the lovely central picture of the heroine making her peace with God offers arguably the most compelling music of all--by degrees intimate and moving. The performance recorded here features the excellent Eric Ericson Chamber Choir--a crack ensemble, as anyone familiar with its EMI recordings will know. Soprano Lisa Delan has the right instincts for the title role as well as a sweetly innocent timbre." -Classics Today
