'As a guide to this cornucopia Leslie Howard could hardly be bettered' (BBC Music Magazine)

'All kinds of fascinating morsels … there is much here to interest any admirer of this remarkable and prolific composer' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Fascinating trouvailles' (Classic CD)
There may once have been more of the stirring Winzerchor (Winnowers' Chorus from the Prometheus choruses) since the manuscript ends at the end of a very full page which continues from the Schnitterchor transcription.

Peut-être y-a-t-il eu, jadis, plus d’éléments de l’exaltant Winzerchor (le Chœur des vanneurs, extrait des Chœurs de Prométhée), car le manuscrit s’arrête à la fin d’une pleine page, qui reprend à partir de la transcription du Schnitterchor.

Früher mag mehr vom bewegenden Winzerchor (aus den Prometheus-Chören) erhalten gewesen sein, da das Manuskript am Ende eines sehr vollen Blattes abbricht, das an die Transkription des Schnitterchors anschließt.
