Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2008
... this is a rounded and impressive reading whose "Dona nobis pacem" encapsulates the best of Suzki: committed, life-affirming and generous.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2008 ****
The choir is small enough, two/three to a part, to project great clarity and detail - 'Osanna' is delightfully exuberant - though elsewhere Suzuki's tempos are rather deliberate...

Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010
This is, as you would expect from Masaaki Suzuki, a B minor performance of extraordinary devotional weight, as its resonant surround sound irradiates the score in a patiently constructed explication... The Gloria fairly crackles and Suzuki's careful voicing between singers and instrumentalists generates extraordinary revelations... This is a rounded and impressive reading whose 'Dona nobis pacem' encapsulates the best of Suzuki: committed, life-affirming and generous.
