Notes & Reviews:
"This is as gorgeously played a 'Missa Solemnis' as has ever been recorded, and I certainly didn't mind traversing the liturgy while swooning over the orchestra. The otherworldly bridge between the Sanctus and Benedictus has never sounded more beautiful...Ormandy devotees will treasure it for the careful balance between visceral excitement and warm, expressive, tasteful music-making..." -Greenfield, ARG
