Notes & Reviews:

Two among the major Vocal Works of the great German repertoire are here presented in the performance of three sacred monsters that never before met in the recording studio. In both cases, except for the very high level achieved by London and Schwarzkopf, the thread is represented by the solemn and tragic conducting by Otto Klemperer, whose Bachian and Malherian performances are still authoritative as to rigor and powerful inner severity.
