3.0 out of 5 stars Great performance let down by the recording, 27 July 2009
Wonderful performance, exactly evoking the 'feel' of Bach's sacred music - soaring choruses, reverent solos, stupendous drums and trumpets. But oh, dear, the quality of the recording leaves alot to be desired. There is some distortion on the first disc, particularly on certain settings of the equaliser; the choir is at times drowned by the instrumental parts and sounds like it's singing through a thick curtain. The diction of the choral parts is appalling; every word comes out as 'sssss'. I really , really wish Herreweghe and the same soloists would record this again on a different label. It would be a great pity to deprive the world of this terrific music for the sake of some poor sound engineering.
