Notes and Editorial Reviews

These performances under Peter Neuman are of consistent quality, with an excellent balance of orchestra, soloists and chorus... Barbara Schlick and Franz-Josef Selig give splendid renderings of the most demanding soprano and bass parts. The allegro tempi are generally brisk but never rushed, with the slow movements taken at an appropriately lyrical pace. The Et Incarnatus in the Great C Minor mass is taken Adagio rather than Andante as marked, but Barbara Schlick's sonorously sustained singing ensures its coherence.
