Notes & Reviews:

The Sixteen completes its acclaimed mini-series with Volume II of the Bach Lutheran Masses. Despite their exquisite beauty, featuring splendid choruses and deeply moving arias, there are relatively few recordings of the Lutheran Masses. On this new collection, just eight singers from The Sixteen perform the Masses, allowing the beauty of the virtuosic vocal lines to be heard with absolute clarity.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2014
This is a fascinating lesson in the art of creative transcription by a master transcriber. Both Masses bring out the relaxed and avuncular in Christophers...With scrupulous instrumental underpinning, a natural recorded sound, and Doyle's ravishing 'Qui tollis', this is a worthy successor to Vol. 1.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2014
The Sixteen could not be better suited to the genial abstraction of the sunny Mass in G major, BWV236...There are more refined and exquisite performances...but there are few as unassuming and natural as this. Strongly recommended.
