I have not too much to add to the previous reviewer, except to say that I agree with his opinion completely. Just to add that I think the acoustics in this recording are ideal. Sometimes we get excellent singing and dry acoustics...or, conversely, over-reverberant voices. This is as near perfection in ambience as I've ever heard, more like the interior of the Pazzi Chapel than The Florence duomo, to use a Renaissance analogy. The intimacy serves the music well, the engineers should be complemented along with the talented singers. I must confess to having an unhistorical preference for female voices in this repetoire, but this recording has it both ways by having the ladies in the motets, and the countertenors in the Mass...an acceptable compromise, methinks!
