"...Richard Hickox draws magnetic performances from chorus and orchestra alike ... As for the recorded sound the bloom of the Leeds Town hall acoustics allows the fullest detail from the orchestra, enhancing the Mediterranean warmth of the score, helped by a wide dynamic range. The many atmospheric effects, often offstage, are clearly and precisely focused, and the placing of the voices on the stereo stage is also unusually precise."
