"Fine, too, is Gerald Finley as a masculine but sensitive Aeneas, another demonstration of this artist's flexibility and breadth of repertoire . . ..

"Recordings of Dido are numerous, and in all honesty I can't say that this is uniformly superior to all the others. Nevertheless, it's a worthy contribution to the catalogue and will be indispensable listening for those who love the piece."--Dominic McHugh, MusicalCrticism.com

"Connolly sings Dido in a doom-laden mezzo ringing with tragic premonitions. She sings Dido's Lament with heavy, slow, tantalising beauty over its inexorable ground-bass. Gerald Finley is an heroic Aeneas, while the soprano Lucy Crowe as Belinda is bright, supple and optimistic. She is the future, on or off the disc."--Rick Jones, The Times

---

"Gerald Finley's manly Aeneas surely has no peers on disc . . .."--Hugh Canning, the Sunday Times
