Notes & Reviews:

EMI Classics relaunches the popular EMI Master Series: The definitive series of great classical music from a trove of the most notable and revered classical recordings ever made. Available on CD and for digital download, this newly repackaged installment of 10 master celebrates EMI Classics' greatest artists, including Maria Callas, Nigel Kennedy and Itzhak Perlman. All performances in this series were recorded, mastered, or a re-mastered at the internationally renowned Abbey Road Studios in London.

Gramophone
The "Dies Irae" has what I can only call a fanatical attack and tempo, while 'Hostias', taken extremely slowly, is deeply devotional. Barenboim has, of course, a superb quartet of soloists, an absolutely first-rate chorus and an orchestra that knows how to play Mozart with the utmost artistry... You really should not overlook this exciting and most beautiful performance.

MusicWeb International, 11th June 2013
[Barenboim] has an impeccable view for architecture...The quartet of soloists is superb, as much for their heartfelt identification with the text as for the musical sound they make...The singing of the John Alldis Choir has a commitment and urgency to it throughout...The playing of the ECO is never less than magisterial.
