"Johan Linderoth as Orfeo; his lithe and pleasing tenor is light and velvety in tone." "In this one there is some fine instrumental playing, with the outstandingly crisp delivery and rhythmic vitality of the wind instruments bringing particular pleasure."
Gramophone, Ian Fenlon

"An operatic journey to some unexpected places"
"This Swedish recording of Monteverdi´s Orfeo is daring, energetic and intense" "Linderoth probes Orfeo's vulnerability from first bar to last: expanding climactic notes, dashing through passages in excitement and stopping short when overtaken by passion, he delivers raw feeling rather than the poised vocalism of star Orfeos like Ian Bostridge or Charles Daniels."
BBC Music Magazine's opera choice of the month October 2021

"…spelar Orfeos trots mot dödsmakterna huvudrollen. Och Johan Linderoth gör denna scen, som också är opera-arians födelse, med en sådan vokal djärvhet och skönhet att man inte bara blir gripen utan också påminns om vilken modernistisk musik detta var vid uruppförandet i Mantua 1607."
En utsökt "L'Orfeo" med strålande vokala insatser DN 210514, Martin Nyström

"Världsklass, inte minst Johan Linderoths Orfeo - han som uttalar sitt namn och finner sin röst."
DN-kritikernas egna favoritalbum från 2021 - Martin Nyström

"Fredrik Malmberg here directs three fine Swedish early music ensembles in a stylish, pacy performance. As Orfeo, the tenor Johan Linderoth excels"
The Times, Friday June 25 2021

"Il faut saluer la direction inelligente et précise de Fredrik Malmberg, et la vivacité avec laquelle sont dessinés les personnages de la fable" "Johan Linderoth est un Orphée heroïque, viril et puissant." "Cet Orfeo s'eloigne de I'incarnation toute mediteranéenne qu'a dernièrement propose Emiliano Gonzalez Toro (Naïve, cf. no 695), mais s'avère tout aussi passionante."
Diapason, Octobre 2021, Dennis Morrier

"The present recording, a collaboration among Ensemble Lundabarock, Höör Barock, and Ensemble Altapunta under the direction of Fredrik Malmberg, is an outstanding addition to a crowded field…. I suspect this L'Orfeo will gain a reputation as one of the best in the discography" "Kristina Hellgren offers one of the finest performances of Musica's introduction to the action I have heard yet….. Johan Linderoth's Orfeo is dramatically convincing, and his resonant tenor is simply a pleasure to hear, luminous and clear"
SACD Review by James V Maiello, Fanfare, Issue 54:2 (Nov/Dec 2021)

"This is, quite simply, the most outstanding recording of Membra Jesu Nostri I've ever heard, and is, I feel, quite faultless" Adrian Horsewood - Early Music Today

"it comes very close to being at the top of an increasingly tall and wobbly pile of sacred Membrae" Dominy Clemens – MusicWeb International

"If you look for a really good recording of this masterpiece, you won't be disappointed if you go for this disc" Johan van Veen – MusicWeb International, Jan. 2017 

"The singers and players are exquisite, their chosen tempos falling in the middle of their extant competitors. It is a superb rendition in the chosen style, the singing and playing quite lovely" J. F. Weber – Fanfare Magazine, March 2017
