Comments:Rich Rosenwald said:

This is probably a reissue of a deleted disc. This is a live recording in 1969 for Japanese Television. Please note that this is NOT a reissue of Archiv 427 155. This is live and the soloists are different.

Hearing this recording being live makes you feel that you are 'there'. You could actually picture it being 1969 and seeing the great Karl Richter conduct. I recommend this recording to anyone wanting to hear a good recording of the B minor mass and/or is having a hard time finding Archiv 427 155. This was made availiable in the USA as a 'special Import for a limited time'. Tower Records, HMV, or another major record store should be able to get this as long as PolyGram has this in their stock. If you have trouble, then call HMV in Toronto. HMV in Toronto: 1-800-567-8468
