  • ★★★★★ 'This is an important release, not only for the quality of its performance but also because the work is very seldom performed...'
    — Independent

    ★★★★ 'Rare Beethoven with 148 singers...Elsa Dreisig sings the soprano part. She is quite phenomenal...'
    — de Volkskrant

    ★★★★ 'If you’re looking for a fine, modern recording of this Beethoven curiosity, look no further...'
    — Limelight

    ★★★★ 'An intense performance by tenor Pavol Breslik as Christ, together with bass David Soar as Petrus and Elsa Dreisig, appropriately delicate as an angel...'
    All Music

    'This is such an impressive performance. The gravitas of Pavol Breslik as Jesus, the sincerity of David Soar as Peter, an impeccably drilled LSO chorus and the orchestra guided with passion by Rattle... an excellent contribution to the anniversary discography'
    — BBC Radio 3, Record Review
