This has a rare combination of brilliance, power, precision, and sensitivity. It treats Bach as a German Lutheran who just happened to live in the baroque period, rather than many "authentic" performers who think only in terms of time periods. Because "authentic" performers think in terms of style periods, they often come across as lacking power.
The influence of Heinrich Schutz on the Dresden Kreuzchor allows it to apply expressiveness on top of the power and precision that are necessary with Bach.
