Leppard and soloists shine in Mozart MassAugust 16, 2013By John M. (St. Augustine, FL)See All My Reviews"This recording first came to my attention years ago before CD's or DVD's were the norm. Finding it again on CD was a joy as every aspect of the recording, soloists, chorus, instruments have joined beautifully making a wholly satisfying experience. Te Kanawa sings with clear joy and precision, her Laudamus Te magnificent. Cotrubas sings the et incarnatus est with a beauty of tone that is hard to imagine being surpassed. Her coda singing with the instruments is a lesson in precision and beauty. All the soloists are perfect and Raymond Leppard conducts with authority and sensitivity. A MUST in every classical library."Report Abuse
