Comments:Akira Tokuhisa said:

How fresh is the voice of the Windsbacher Knabenchor! Their clear and weightless voices, which remind you a spotless blue sky in summer, suit really well the music by Bach. They sing lively and can follow the fast and complicated passages without difficulty. It's almost incredible that the boys of the choir can sing so accurately. The recording vividly captures the freshness and youthfulness of the performance. This recording must be great pleasure for those who love a natural and fresh performance of Mass in B minor.
