Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Karajan conveys intensity, even religious fervour, and the very opening brings an impressive first entry of the choir on Kyrie...There is a strong sense of the work's architecture, and the highly polished surfaces do not obscure the depths of the music." -Penguin Guide
