Wonderful.

The Missa Salisburgensis, while little known to most people and recently rediscovered, actually uses the most contrapuntal voices/lines of any work before the 20th century (I believe it has 53 voices, some of which are doubled by instruments). Melodically, it's not always particularly interesting, but harmonically, it is awe-inspring, with innumerable lines to listen to, rich polyphonic textures, and perfect unity on a level of grandeur that the world had never known before its existence. The performance venue McCreesh chose brings out the resonance and the warmth of the piece, and the Gabrieli Consort, as usual, renders the song beautifully and with perfect execution. A must-have for lovers of Baroque music.

It's hard in a work like this not to be a little overblown, and at times it is, but that's just part of the spectacle.
