Notes & Reviews:

This recording presents three different, utterly contrasting responses to the quest for expression and the solution to the old problem of how to merge text and music into a unity. The common theme linking these compositions-'The Passion and Pains of Love'-has been wrested from the texts of these choral works: they are poetic declarations of love, descriptions of nature with erotic and intimate imagery, and poems that speak of unfulfilled yearning and breaking hearts.

BBC Music Magazine
Unearthly purity of upper voices as the god of Strauss's and Schiller's evening picture descends sets the scene very well indeed. More exciting of all are the climaxes of the real novelties here, Clytus Gottwald's arrangements of the two Wesendonck Lieder which Wagner transfigures in Tristan. ...both settings open out dazzlingly. Sopranos hit spot-on top Ds both here and in a very substantial bonus, Gottwald's even more successful treatment of 'Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen' from Mahler's Rückert Lieder.
