Comments:Douglas Botnick said:

Superb performance and recording with authentically sized resources but somewhat romantic performance style. Grandure and intimate sensitivety, great commitment and wonderfully lyric phrasing from the vocal & instrumental soloists as well as the ensembles. Among the best recorded sound to ever come from RCA Red Seal.
