"Elegant and fluent singing" - Gramophone

"Excellently done" - Gramophone

"What I see as Mendelssohn's chief virtue is his crystalline clarity... It makes him one of the greatest composers of religious music. In the direct line of the earlier masters Mendelssohn admired so much, he was able to efface himself before the divine word and to set it to music with all necessary humility. This is what constitutes the power of the music on this recording." - Philippe Herreweghe
