Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The only budget version of this complete oratorio currently available. A much loved performance that has stood the test of time with its golden cast of singers beautifully accompanied by the ECO and Somary. "solo singing is excellent, with Alexander Young a ringing tenor, and Helen Watts singing the opening aria in Act 3 exquisitely. Very good recording ....effect is wholly natural - and a sense of commitment throughout from all departments" (Penguin Guide) "Helen Watts and John Shirley-Quirk remain outstanding singers of this repertory". (Gramophone)
