Comments:Kajsa Hallhagen said:

This is a live recording made in a church in Stockholm. Most of the singers sings by heart, which gives the performance much intensity.

Live recording from Adolf Fredrik's Church in Stockholm. The Stockholm Bach Choir is known as one of the finest baroque ensembles, well known not only in Sweden but also in the rest of Europe, in Asia and Australia.
"This recording of the B minor mass is a smashing hit" (Audiophil Sound distribution, 10. February '99)
