"...recognition is due to the brilliant period-violinist who, as first-desk 'leader', draws wonderful discipline and spirit from the ensemble. The sound is full-bodied and well-balanced. The thick album booklet includes admirable notes, along with the full libretto and translations. No collection of baroque opera should be without this exciting and fascinating release."
- AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE
"This studio recording follows staged performances at the Boston Early Music Festival and is well presented in every aspect... The whole is driven with taste, style and sure dramatic sense by the continuo powerhouse of theorbo-players Paul O'Dette and Stephen Stubbs. Still often underrated, Lully is an operatic giant, and this fine recording makes eloquent proof."
