, December 1996

"...the recording under Jacques Grimbert is distinguished by some of the most beautiful countertenor singing I have ever heard, from Michael Chance in the title-role."


"The singing of Michael Chance is truly in a class of its own... Jill secure and always musicianly...Rosa Mannion is very impressive... the tenor role of Aceste is sung with good, full-blooded tone and gracefully phrased by Howard Milner"

Penguin Guide

"The counter-tenor, Michael Chance, sings flawlessly in the castrato role of Ascanio....Lorna Windsor, bright and clear as outstanding bargain in every way, rare Mozart that for most will be a delightful discovery"

Classic CD

"this excellent performance, starring Michael Chance, is a phenomenal bargain"
