Reviews

'Neither of these imaginative works impressed critics, performers or audiences at their premieres, so they languished. With Davan Wetton drawing a first-class performance from the choir and the RPO, plus a splendidly detailed and spacious recording, home audiences can now appreciate their full worth' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)
