"Throughout, Sargent's pacing, even when slow, is seemingly spontaneous and has the confident hallmark of authority which stems from conducting and admiring Messiah for 40 years."
(Gramophone)

"Throughout, Sargent's pacing, even when slow, is seemingly spontaneous and has the confident hallmark of authority which stems from conducting and admiring Messiah for 40 years. Sargent was not, as we know, a specially modest man, but even he conceded that ''the best of me is not worthy of this masterpiece''. Although there are reservations, his performance, if not complete, is a vivid listening experience and the improvement in sound compared with the original ill-focused 1959 stereo LPs is astonishing. It is well worth its budget-price."
(Gramophone)
