Notes & Reviews:

Following two prize-winning recordings of works by Jan Dismas Zelenka highly praised by the international press, the Prague-based Collegium 1704 directed by Václav Luks turns to one of the great milestones in baroque choral literature: Johann Sebastian Bach's B-minor Mass. This recording captivates listeners through the special charm, lightness and great virtuosity for which this ensemble is noted. Whereas a rather Protestant sobriety dominates other recordings of Bach's great Mass, this recording is impressive for its more Catholic-influenced, Bohemian joy in music-making.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2013
There is no mistaking Collegium 1704's qualities: the superb choir sing with judicious weight and solemnity in the opening chords of the Kyrie...There's plenty of sparkle and vigour in the trumpet-laden opening of the Gloria...another highly accomplished Mass in B minor rather than an essential new perspective - but there's nothing wrong with that.

MusicWeb International, 11th December 2013
Blaziková is one of the brightest stars in the early music scene right now, and it is easy to understand why that is the case. She has a very beautiful voice, with a bright timbre and great flexibility. Her articulation and phrasing and her treatment of dynamics are outstanding and very appropriate for this kind of music. She is the main asset of this recording.

Choir & Organ, January/February 2014
The Crucifixus is refreshingly strong in character, while the Agnus Dei is beautifully shaped. Balance and blend are excellent- there is no doubt the enormous care has been taken over this recording.

Organists Review, March 2014
The soloists are excellent, the choir's intonation, attack and ensemble are impeccable and the orchestra is controlled ...the clarity of texture is exemplary.
