"...From start to finish the three vocal soloists, Americans all, project the oratorio's original German text with clarity and point. Each singer phrases the vocal line with unfettered elegance - for example, Amanda Forsythe in Gabriel's ‘Auf starkem Fittiche,' which, for sheer polish and grace, is definitely in the Popp/Bonney/Donath class. It's gratifying to hear Forsythe - who also sings a delectably feminine Eve - displaying such a thorough command of technical niceties (including effortless trills and pristine fioritura), plus a warmth of timbre atypical of most light lyric sopranos."

Opera News

"...Amanda Forsythe is an immediately appealing Gabriel. Her warm focused tone and light, rapid vibrato exude a Lucia Popp-like joy in the creation and in singing. Her handling of the coloratura is nearly as effortless as that paragon's, with trills nicely placed."

Fanfare Magazine

"...With her bright, light-filled tone, Amanda Forsythe gives an accurate, charming reading of the soprano part."

BBC Music Magazine

"...Amanda Forsythe has a most pleasing voice, bright, clear and readily communicative. She has the agility required...and there is a smile in her voice that is very winning."

International Record Review

"...There and elsewhere, the singing of soprano Amanda Forsythe is pure delight. Her tone is crystalline, her intonation faultless, her enunciation pellucid - and, best of all, she is a lovely musician and a searching artist. I can't imagine anyone bettering her "Nun beut die Flur," with its jubilant trills and tricky, expertly handled intervals, or her blissful way with Eve's "Der Blumen Duft" in the second duet with Adam."

Jewish Daily Forward

"...spring water clear soprano Amanda Forsythe, who aces her ravishing arias and scatters delightful trills-make this well-recorded set a delight."
