'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)
