“Janet Baker’s recording is a truly great performance. The radiant beauty of the voice is obvious enough, but the emotion is implied, as it should be in this music …the contrast between the opening phrase of When I am laid in earth and its repeat a few bars later is a model of graduated mezza voce…. Lewis and the ECO produce the crispest and lightest of playing, which never sounds rushed” (Penguin Rosette)
