West reviewer William Yeoman first explains the musical tradition of the 'passion' in terms of the language of suffering, and then goes on to praise the soloists' performances.

However, the review reveals that he was in particular awe of the Cathedral Consort, which, he writes, "sang with a power and eloquence that was barely credible given the youth of its members", and most impressed by Joseph Nolan's direction:

"But the greatest praise must go to conductor Joseph Nolan, organist and master of the choristers at St George's Cathedral, who steered the performance towards its shattering climax and beyond to the final refulgent chorus with such precision and artistry that one felt convinced not only of the existence of a language of suffering - but of redemption."
