Notes & Reviews:

Like the BBC Legends recording of the Sinfonietta, Tennstedt never commercially recorded the Glagolitic Mass. It is a massive work comprising four singers, organ and full orchestra and choir and this brilliant stereo recording makes a stunning impression. Tennstedt conducting live always produced that extra frisson missing from the studio. "Tennstedt has an empathy with the Czech repertoire that shines through every bar on this CD...His way with Dvorak's Eighth is one of the most impressive I have come across...this is a performance to treasure." - BBC Music Magazine
