New York Times
'A fascinating recording'
'... the music has a genuine lyric charm... its strands are skilfully interwoven, with a delightful tail-in-mouth ending.'
'A most commendable recording'
'Handsomely cast, spaciously recorded and accompanied by a substantial booklet'
'Beautifully... performed, by a blue-chip cast under period expert Parry. This tale of royal skulduggery is the third Meyerbeer rarity from his champions at Opera Rara, and a must for all serious collectors.'
