The Cecilian Vespers



"The recording is clear and focused, especially kind towards the singers. Colours are perfectly captured and dynamics are natural. Left-right separation is excellent, every singer placed naturally and up front, with the orchestra and choir perfectly blended in."
"The most exciting high baroque choral vocal music you can hear anywhere, brilliantly recorded so every tiny detail is present...Recording is accurate giving full definition to soloists against each other and each against the chorus, in the SACD surround tracks both side to side and in depth, with all musicians in the front of the hall, the chorus behind the soloists."
– MusicWeb UK
