Comments:Randall Perry said:

It has been a number of years since I had occasion to listen to a recording of the six motets, and from what I remember the LP sounded muddy and undefined. Enter digital technology: this new recording is a DDD masterpiece, another superb effort from CBC records. Ivar Taurins and Tafelmusik are at the top of their form; nary a note out of place, clean vocal lines and just enough orchestral accompaniment to round out the performance. Highly recommended.
