Notes & Reviews:

Following two prize-winning recordings of works by Jan Dismas Zelenka highly praised by the international press, the Prague-based Collegium 1704 directed by Václav Luks turns to one of the great milestones in baroque choral literature: Johann Sebastian Bach's B-minor Mass. This recording captivates listeners through the special charm, lightness and great virtuosity for which this ensemble is noted. Whereas a rather Protestant sobriety dominates other recordings of Bach's great Mass, this recording is impressive for its more Catholic-influenced, Bohemian joy in music-making.
