Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

BBC Music Magazine
The finely focused Bach Choir often sounds uncannily of almost chamber proportions, in 'The many rend the skies' (Alexander's Feast), and the wondering description of Christ's miracle in Handel's self-confessed favourite chorus, 'He saw the lovely youth', from Theodora.
