"Rachelle Jonck conducted with authority and sweep, from the warm lyricism of the opening Kyrie to the haunting colors and pulsing energy of the Agnus Dei. The choral ensembles were vividly detailed, particularly the jaunty “Cum sancto spiritu” fugue, beautifully shaped and paced by Jonck, and the smoother “Et vitam venturi” that concludes the Credo. There was an awareness of the Italianness of each movement and its place in the musical drama." - Opera News, Judith Malafronte
