'Superbly recorded. Highly recommended and unlikely to be surpassed in the near future' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'The commanding nature of these performances, captured in sound of tremendous presence, cannot be denied. Nicholson captures a Handelian dignity and grandeur often forgotten, in the frenzy that informs many interpretations aspiring to authenticity… Magisterial performances of majestic music' (Classic CD)
