. . . [Colin Davis is] distilling all his affinity with Berlioz's music in a performance of presence and poise and having the advantage of an incomparable Mary in Janet Baker . . . Baker, whether in "Les nuits d'été", "La mort de Cléopatre" or here in "L'enfance du Christ", is an artist inextricably linked with Berlioz, and her interpretation of Mary expresses tenderness and trepidation in a way that probes deeply into the character . . .
