Notes and Editorial Reviews
"Bruno Weil draws incandscent performances of Schubert's Masses from his fine team, helped by sound that is clearer and more detailed than on direct rival recordings. The combination of Viennese choirs - with the trebles of the Vienna Boys' Choir outstandingly full and fresh - and of a British period orchestra works superbly, making one appreciate, even more than with the Sawallisch versions, how seriously this area of Schubert's oeuvre has been underappreciated." -- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition]
