4/6 Hjerter
Politiken

"Skrevet på dansk, som de er, skulle salmerne styrke danskerens tro, og selv om de næppe ofte har været sunget så rent og nuanceret som her af sopranen Else Torp og bassen Jakob Bloch Jespersen, så er dette en vellykket cd at blive klog af."

The Symphonies & Concertos

Classical CD Review

"Over the past months this site has praised the Alan Gibert/New York Philharmonic series of all of the symphonies of Carl Nielsen. Now all of these including the concertos have been issued in a boxed set, five disks for the price of four. These are all near-perfect performances recorded with utmost realism, highly recommended."

4/6 Stars
GregersDH

"Sært og tankevækkende... Sangene bliver sunget med stærk indlevelse af Jakob Bloch Jespersen og Else Torp. En mandig bas, der lever hvert ord i salmerne og tilfører dem prægtig klang. Og en lysende, rent syngende sopran med næsten barnlig klang trods den modne artikulation."
