Allen Gimbel
American Record Guide, May 2014

This performance…is visually stunning and mind-bogglingly well sung. Ms Upshaw and Ms Hunt-Lieberson…are spectacular in their difficult roles. Mr White’s performance is simply unforgettable. The choral settings are magnificently well prepared and executed. Nagano and his group are flawless. This is obviously not to be missed. © 2014 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Mike Ashman
Gramophone, February 2014

Peter Maniura’s filming of the event inevitably becomes its own version of the piece. Adams and Sellars were lucky with their singers. Happy the show that can put up a trio like this, all in good voice…and Lorraine Hunt Lieberson’s acting and movement are as impassioned as her singing. A last word of praise for the libretto, whose mix of Gospel, Apocryphal Gospel and Mexican poetry is every bit as happy and dramatic as Adams’s score. Hugely recommended. © 2014 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
