“The well trained choristers managed their various roles with distinction, dispassionate observers in the chorales, bloodthirsty crowds in the trial scenes and most tellingly as loving friends in the final chorus… Moon’s little band kept the baroque conventions on track with strong strings, elegant obbligatos from oboes and flutes and secure continuo of organ, gamba and bassoon.”

“The Adelaide Chamber Singers and the Sydney Chamber Choir, the two choirs which formed the chorus, were magnificent … The chorales, varied within themselves according to their emotional import, were polished, meticulously phrased, and emotionally satisfying… The singers were joined by an orchestra of excellent players led by Lucinda Moon, one of Australia’s most experienced and capable baroque violinists.”

“The full, focused sound of the opening chorale, Herr unser Herrscher, promised good things to come and they did… the chorus [was] directed by Adelaide Chamber Singers conductor Carl Crossin [and] their sound filled the Great Hall with full-toned, smooth-edged gravitas.”
