'Nowhere is the grasp of the musical architecture surer than in the vast spans of Twilight of the Gods, while orchestral textures are as ravishing as ever.'
BBC Music Magazine

‘The Ring Cycle that Reginald Goodall conducted from 1969 onwards … remains one of the company’s greatest achievements.’
(The Guardian on CHAN 3038(4) (The Valkyrie)

‘This very fine Wagner recording returns to the catalogue – a highly persuasive account in its considered approach. The singing, in an effective English translation is excellent.’
Gramophone on CHAN 3038(4) (The Valkyrie)

‘…one is transfixed by the quality of the singing… and above all by the orchestral playing and by the grandeur and insight of Sir Reginald’s conducting.’
The Sunday Telegraph on CHAN 3045(4) (Siegfried)

‘Anyone collecting the cycle in its latest incarnation won’t need any more encouragement to complete their set, for the shining virtues of the previous installments are preserved in Twilight of the Gods’.
The Guardian
