Customer Review

on 5 October 2013
Whilst this recording of Beethoven's 'Missa Solemnis' still stands as amongst the best available versions, the Bach and Handel works may be perceived as too heavy and slow by modern audiences, who are used to the smaller scale, more 'authentic', performances which are favoured now. Although they take a bit of getting used to at first, it's well worth persevering with these recordings, because they are 'of their period' and remain fine performances, particularly when compared to other versions available at the time of their original release. Playing and singing are first rate, as are the excellent Kingsway Hall recordings, the set only narrowly missing 5 star status for the reasons highlighted above.
