|Comments:||Rich Rosenwald said:|
Missa Brevis of Bach are masses consisting of Kyre and Gloria only.
The singing is wonderful, and it is great that Decca re-issued such wonderful works.
I loved the cantatas here. The cantatas here are well performed and hard to find.
I had a recording of the Masses on Philips with Schreier, and this recording surpasses that. The performances and singers are clean and well-rounded.
