Notes & Reviews:

This fascinating album, opening and closing with works by near and Reger, presents a Transfiguration Mass containing both texts and music either borrowed from other feasts or composed specifically after the 15th century, resulting in a composite of utterly entrancing and thoroughly compatible selections that make for unusually beautiful listening.
