Review By John Quinn ,MusicWeb International,October 2012

…the organ of Birmingham Town Hall…adds a magnificent depth of sound to several passages, such as the end of the chorus that immediately precedes ‘Take all the prophets of Baal’. Even more impressive is its presence at the end of the chorus that concludes Part I and the organ also makes its mark thrillingly as Elijah is taken up to heaven in the fiery chariot and again at the very end of the work. I’ve never been so aware of the organ part in Elijah and it’s superb!

Robert Murray sings well; there’s an excellent ring and brightness to his tone.
