Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide
Here's a very nice set of three CDs devoted mostly to German music and performed by the cream of German and Austrian boychoirs (or mixed choirs of men or youths plus boys). Name your favorite Teutonic choir that contains boys, and you'll no doubt find it here... Performances, as you would expect with such esteemed choirs at work, are mostly excellent; recording ambiences and quality are quite variable, but generally fine.
