The only recording I've seen with all four of the 'Short' Masses.

Ron Thomsen said

Flamig is a power conductor who has the ability to be very sensitive with his expressiveness (possibly the influence of Heinrich Schutz on the Dresden Kreuzchor). It amazes me how Flamig can smoothly glide through complicated counterpoint and make it so expressive
