Munich Bach OrchestraFebruary 18, 2014By W. Braga (Clarksville, NY)See All My Reviews"Richter's B Minor Mass is superb. Especially outstanding is Topper's rendition of Miserere Nobis. This DVD, besides its acoustic value, also brings gorgeous images of the Diessen am Ammersee baroque Klosterkirche. A keeper."Report Abuse
