Notes & Reviews:

"...if there's a happier take on Bach's mighty traversal of the liturgy out there, I've yet to hear it. Those inured to the solemnity of the work might find this a mite glib, but I certainly don't... while in the men and boys department I've never heard a more engaging B-minor mass than this one." -American Record Guide

One of the highlights from the Windsbacher Knabenchor's discography: its superb rendering of Bach's Mass in B minor in a recording of unparalleled radiance, intensity and immediacy. The Passauer Presse described this disc as 'brilliant and full of intellectual depth'. For this unique production, the Windsbacher Knabenchor is joined by the first-class international soloists Christine Schaefer, Ingeborg Danz, Markus Schaefer, and Thomas Quasthoff. The CD's design matches that of the recording itself: the CDs come in a solid box set, complete with a 68-page booklet.
