Reviews: “[This] is an important addition to Ferrier’s discography, and she is indeed marvellous in it, singing ‘Esurientes implevit bonis’ with that unique, indescribable tone and expressive sincerity that characterises her finest work.In due course these and later recordings were reissued in other formats: Long-playing (LP), cassette tape and compact disc (CD).
