I know there are a plethora of recordings of this item and some have good and bad sections, however, I must admit to being totally underwhelmed by this recording. I was not impressed by the quality of the soloists, I felt some of the movements lacked colour and sensitivity to the text, to say nothing of the misjudged tempi.
Unfortunately, and I say this with a heavy heart - this, for me, is one of the most emotionally detached versions of such an emotional piece of music I have ever had the misfortune to listen to.
