"...This is clearly the right choice, and clearly the Elijah of choice. Want List material."
Peter J Rabinowitz - Fanfare - March/April 2013
Most Memorable Albums of the Year
"... The Gabrieli Consort revisited San Marco with a new version of A Venetian Coronation and delivered a spine-chilling rendition of Mendelssohn’s Elijah."
Anna Picard - The Independent on Sunday - December 2012
Music **** (Very Good) Sound ***** (Very Good)
Marcus Stäbler - Fono Forum magazine - January 2013
"...Congratulations are in order to all those involved in this splendidly sung and recorded release of Mendelssohn’s Elijah on Signum. Paul McCreesh does sterling work in controlling his large choral and orchestral forces that number well over 400. I have no better recording of Elijah and this will certainly be a set that I will reach for again and again."
Michael Cookson - MusicWeb-International.com - 16 November 2012
"...this is a triumph."
Richard Lawrence - Gramophone magazine – November 2012
***** - Highly Recommended
"...this is a reading to make one hear Mendelssohn’s masterpiece anew: the vast orchestral and choral forces employed are surprisingly subtle and flexible, while the quartet of British soloists, led by keenlyside’s towering impersonation of the title role, could not be bettered... Not to be missed."
Philip Reed - Choir & Organ magazine - November/December 2012
"The musical milieu is still Victorian but, rather like the cleaned-up Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens, it gleams anew and radiates light. ... a definite first choice."
"...this release is an absolutely tremendous achievement ... Go out, buy it, set an evening aside and prepare to be uplifted with the prophet. You’ll feel that you’re in his fiery chariot."
David Hansell - Early Music Review - October 2012
