Comments:Sam Lasserson said:

When I put this disc on, I was immediately struck by the brightness and clarity with which the instruments and voices cut through. I cannot listen to this recording without a smile on my face, and I feel that at only ú5 the price is unfair to it. Bach's mastery of the choral setting comes across to the listener, and the recording proves that budget labels are every bit as good as (if not better than) the bigger recording names.
