Comments:In 40+ years of listening to Bach (almost exclusively) I have never heard such an imaginative, precise, serious, daring, crisp, intense interpretation of the B-minor Mass. This recording is packed with restrained enthusiasm and absolute reverence for precision. Every note has been carefully studied and, most important, the musical musical director has clearly understood its role in the whole piece. In short, a superb interpretation.
