     "The Philharmonia’s playing is a joy throughout and the recording is a true picture of what the best engineering could produce in those days."

                         Musicweb-International on Missa solomnis 

    "Fricsay was at his finest in this Beethoven opera, and the singing of the strong cast is consistently satisfying...The glroy of the cast is the Pizarro of Fischer-Dieskau,  incisively evil-sounding and superbly characterized all through."
