'Drawing on a disciplined and dedicated response from his London Symphony forces, Hickox masterminds a stirring display (ideally balanced by the Couzens production team) that scales genuine heights in the 'Agnus Dei' and 'Libera me'. Both Philip Langridge and John Shirley-Quirk are at their authoritative, sensitive best - and what a joy to hear Heather Harper in the part she sang at the work's 1962 first performance.'
Richard Hickox’s Chandos version rivals even the composer’s own definitive account in its passion and perception, and must now be regarded as first choice… outstanding performances.
