"Richard Hickox with the London Symphony Chorus and the LSO secures a performance that pays tribute to the English choral tradition in this work and presents it dramatically as a kind of religious opera... Rosalind Plowright and Arthur Davies combine purity of tone with operatic expressivenesss ... The chorus fearlessly underlines the high contrasts of dynamic demanded in the score. The Chandos recording, full and immediate yet atmospheric too, enhances the drama."
