Notes & Reviews:

The Kammerchor Stuttgart is one of the finest choirs worldwide. Under the direction of Frieder Bernius they shine in this recording of the first of Beethoven's two grand masses - a work which opens up new worlds of expression for the Mass text that are expressly modern. The world-premiere recording of Cherubini's "Sciant gentes" (1892) rounds out this CD.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The Stuttgart Chamber Choir is fine mixed group of nearly 50 singers with more than 70 records to their credit. They have enough strength to bring weight when needed. The equally good soloists sing with minimal vibrato, so the ensembles are particularly open and lovely. Bernius keeps the piece moving along well. Cherubini's Sciant Gentes is a three-movement motet on psalm texts, written in 1829 for the royal chapel in Paris; the liner notes claim this as the first recording of the work. It is a well-crafted piece. A pleasant piece. The Beethoven is worth having.
