'The cast is, for the most part, superb. The diction is so clear that the need for the printed libretto is minimal, and everything is sun and characterized with enormous conviction. The various choral forces are terrific as is the Boston Modern Orchestra Project. The recorded sound is more than up to the house standard at Chandos… This is an obligatory purchase for children of all ages.'' Fanfare
