Press reviews

Classical Source 5 out of 5

‘The advantage of this LSO recording is that the widely spread, powerful choir is accompanied by well-detailed orchestral sound…
This lucid, superbly sung account is now among my favourites of ‘Lobgesang’.

BBC 3 Summer Record Review

‘Fine soloists!’

Classical CD Choice

‘A powerful and uplifting account of one of Mendelssohn’s most striking and original compositions. Highly recommend.’
