Notes & Reviews:

Schubert's last great masses - No.5 in A flat and No.6 in E flat - are considered his greatest achievements in the genre, featuring beautiful and complex writing for choir and orchestra. With the help of a team of legendary soloists (Donath, Springer, Schreir and Adam) and led by conductor Wolfgang Saawllisch, Penguin Good CD Guide claims this album as, "first class; spacious with plenty of depth and a very good overall balance."

"the...Dresden sound is first class: spacious, with plenty of depth and a very good overall balance. The conductor has chosen a superb team of soloists...Helen Donath sings very beautifully...undoubtedly Sawallisch is at his most inspired throughout." -Penguin Guide

American Record Guide
This Dresden performance, particularly the Gloria, reawakened in me what a wonderful work this is. I've known it since I sang it as a college undergraduate, and after all these years it is as much a miracle as ever... excellent contributions from soloists and chorus...
