"Hickox gives a glowing account of this ambitious setting of a German text drawn from Nietzche’s Also sprach Zarathustra. He is helped by excellent singing and playing from his Bournemouth forces, and by fine solo singing, notably from the soprano Joan Rodgers. The full and atmospheric Chandos recording confirms the primacy of this version even over the excellent earlier recordings, the Requiem, half an hour long makes ideal coupling, emerging as a fine example of Deliu’s later work... Here too - with Rebecca Evans this time as soprano soloist - Hickox conducts a most persausive performance, ripely recorded."
