Notes & Reviews:

"...Valeri Polyansky and the Russian State Symphonic Cappella show [that] the E minor Mass is an utterly original creation, a sound-world like no other. The combination of sumptuous, lucid choral writing and austere wind-band accompaniment is distinctive enough...This is a performance with vision--a vision which alternately uplifts and disturbs; and somehow the spacious, foggy recording suits it very well. Technically too, the singing is remarkable..." ***** -Johnson, BBC
