'An outstanding disc in a trail-blazing series: highly recommended' (BBC Music Magazine)

'The irresistible music will compel you to acquire this recording' (Early Music Review)

'All parties sound as if they love every moment of this absorbing and enjoyable programme' (American Record Guide)

'I completely missed this 1994 release which makes the last 13 years somewhat poorer as a result! … this collection of cantatas and theater music is simply stunning—rarely do we hear a composer of that age who even comes close to what Mozart was doing, but if any can make that claim, Linley certainly can … the freshness and invention—will strike you over and over … these period performances are sterling in concept and execution, and Hyperion’s midprice Helios label makes them almost irresistible' (Audiophile)

'Le programme est d'une parfaite cohérence et magistralement interprété' (Répertoire, France)

'Il y a longtemps que le disque ne nous avait révélé un talent méconnu aussi brillant et attachant' (Diapason, France)
