‘Colin Davis leads a superb quartet of soloists and brings out all the humanity and tenderness of the music with his customary skill. The LSO Chorus responds brilliantly’ (Classic FM) ‘Colin Davis who meets the work on its own particular ground with such imagination and style in this version. The great fugal perorations are crisper under Davis – more Haydnesque, you might say’ (Gramophone) [9th sym] BBC Radio 3 CD of the Week. ‘This has impressed everyone … a feeling of immediacy and drama tempered with vision and maturity.’ (BBC) ‘Feel the warmth of Finley’s opening bass solo, marvel at the open throats of the LSO Chorus.’ (The Times)
