Reviews

‘a fine and vivid performance under Markevitch and with Seefried, Holm and Borg as excellent soloists’ Gramophone, December 1956

‘an especially successful issue … the choir of St. Hedwig’s Cathedral in Berlin sing with great beauty of tone and remarkable sensibility. Kim Borg makes a magisterial Raphael (as well as a tender Adam) … The recording is first class and the whole performance captures the wonderful glow of happiness that permeates the music.’ Gramophone, August 1956
