Review by Dan Popp January 25, 2004 (1 of 3 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:
A fine performance well recorded. My complaints have to do only with the size of the ensemble. The Netherlands Bach Society is apparently 20 instrumentalists playing period instruments and 20 vocalists. I miss the raw "punch" of massed voices singing the "Dies Irae," "Rex Tremendae" etc. And perhaps the period instruments don't have the power or sonority of the modern ones - or is that only a mistaken impression on my part?

Compared to the CD I have featuring Robert Shaw's incredible choir, the sonics are much clearer (the CD always sounded dull and mushy to me) and this recording carries a certain intimacy and authenticity that some will prefer. But the drama of the larger group isn't there.

The notes state that this was "recorded live," but I hear no audience noises whatsoever (I'm listening in stereo).
