A delightful and accurate performance of the work as Rossini intended. A crystal clear recording technically. Highly recommended, and a great guide for singers about to perform it.

Since we were studying this version for our own performance with Chorus Austin, I wanted to hear it with the original instruments for which Rossini scored it. It is an awesome recording with excellent instrumentalists and soloists. I've been listening to it for weeks without getting tired of it. The piece is just full of variations, not just of themes, but of styles. Rossini at his very best, performed by some of the best. I highly recommend this version.

I purchased this CD to learn the music along with the score music to perform later in the year. The sound is brilliant very precise.

This is one of the best recordings of this work I have heard. It captures the jolly nature of Rossini very well and I would recommend it to anyone. N.B. the Kyrie and the Cum Sanctus Spiritus are especially good.
A very good buy.

Chose it as it has the original accompaniment of harmonium and two pianos which our choir is using in a concert soon. The choir dynamics and pacing are excellent, the humour of the writing is pretty well captured, the male soloists including a much younger John Tomlinson are fine but the feamle soloists are not. Compare Daniella Barcellona's singing of the Agnus Dei (available on You Tube)

A mass performed by a choir and soloists but without an organ or orchestra sounds a bit thin ,although the pianos and harmonium do their best and the singing is excellent.Enjoyable and gets better after a second or third hearing
