Notes & Reviews:
The importance of Bach's B Minor Mass is difficult to over-estimate: some consider it the most quintessential work of Bach, a summing up of his creative, human and religious powers, and a source of inspiration, solace and faith of humans of all ages, and ages to come. This famous recording is based on the Historically Informed Performance Practice, and presents the best voices in this field.
BBC Music Magazine, December 2012
A compelling line-up of soloists is the chief draw in a scrupulously-crafted, neatly-executed concert performance comporomised by the reverberant acoustic.
Recording information: Cattedrale di San Lorenzo, Lugano, Switzerland (06/03/1997).
