 Munich Bach Orchestra February 18, 2014 By 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
