Notes & Reviews:

"Best always does well with Bruckner... [His] Bruckner recordings go back to the 80s when he presented a wonderful program of motets. Followed by the second (E minor) and third (F minor) masses... This release is right in line with the others. The soloists are all very good... The Corydon Singers... handle Bruckner's chromatic writing and power demands with ease; and Best balances the raw exciting sections against the meditative, spiritual ones with expertise... I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with this." - American Record Guide

'A glowing culmination to another outstanding Hyperion project' (The Independent)

'New standards of excellence ... stunning' (Gramophone)

'D'une fervour et d'une engagement qui lui font mériter une place de choix aux côtés de Karajan et de Jochum' (Répertoire, France)

'Highest honours must go to the outstanding 140-voice chorus who sing with earth-shattering conviction, utmost clarity of diction and enviable precision of ensemble and intonation ... the combined strengths of this Hyperion version guarantee prime recommendation' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

'This splendid recording shows both of these monumental scores to best advantage. I wouldn't hesitate to acquire this excellent disc ... first-rate' (International Record Review)
