Beautiful performance. The limited vocal forces give clarity and transparency. I thank Joshua Rifkin for initiating the trend toward this style of performance.
I often base a judgement of a B Minor performance by the rendition of "Cum Sancto Spiritu". Tempo and performance to make one jump out of his seat and dance.


ROCK ON!!
