Notes and Editorial Reviews
This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.


Philippe Herreweghe's Ninth gets off to a good start, with vivid accounts of the first two movements, aided by fine playing from the Royal Flemish Philharmonic.

– BBC Music Magazine

The scherzo is rhythmically alive and exciting, underpinned by powerful contributions from the timpani. The sung recitative is dispatched well by David Wilson Johnson...The two choirs sing with real fervor.
