Comments:Lee Merrill said:

Excellent musicianship and expression, the first piece has a "piccolo cello" which is not played in good tune, but the tenor soloist carries the piece into magnificence, "O ewiges Feuer" needs the chorus to sound less distant, but overall, performed with skill and devotion.
