This Glasgow performance has vivid presence and superlative choral singing...Martyn Brabbins...secures impressive playing from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra."
"[Martyn Brabbins] conveys the electrifying drama of the grander, more extrovert moments."
"The overall effect of this performance is satisfying, with Lynda Russell distinguished among the soloists, the brass choir thrilling in its fanfares"
