BRUCKNER: Mass in E Minor
La Chapelle Royale, Collegium Vocale Gent, Ensemble Musique Oblique, Philippe Herreweghe, dir. / cond.
"Another outstanding recording of sacred music is the Bruckner CD by Herreweghe. The Mass is scored for chorus and winds only, and produces a wonderfully grand and sober sound in the full ensemble...The motets are less well-known but are among the most gloriously rewarding music to sing in the a cappella repertory. Listening is an equally rich experience, as one traversal of "O Justi" or "Locus Iste" will reveal. Herreweghe's performances are distinguished for their clarity, spaciousness and ethereal choral texture."
