Recorded live at the 1997 Wexford Festival, this is an interesting, entertaining score with some lovely long melodies. The performance is spirited and well rehearsed, the singing vigorous if not subtle, the orchestral playing admirably clean. Another valuable addition to the emerging Mercadante picture.
