“a deeply felt, thoughtful and, where needed, highly dramatic interpretation of an indisputable masterpiece.” 

“orchestral textures were sensuously coloured, and the vast symphonic structure flawlessly paced and handled. The choral singing, thrilling in its immediacy and clarity, can only be described as electrifying from start to finish” (The Guardian) “For Davis Elgar is a European composer, and the links to Wagner are clear … Davis is the star: guiding shaping, enhancing the beauty and the flow.” (The Times) “so magical is Davis’s phrasing that there are times that one dare not breathe for fear of breaking the spell.” (International Record Review)

London Symphony Orchestra &
Chorus / Sir Colin Davis
