OK - But nothing to write home about

The Schubert Mass in B, a soothing, hopeful, piece is the reason most will be tempted to buy this album. The quality of the recording and the artists is unquestioned. What is lacking is the quality of the engineering. As a result, the sound is in places similiar to an old hi-fi record. At times the the mikes seem too far away from the artists which results in a mishmash. Throughout the recording dynamic subtleties (and highlights) of the voice parts are not clearly separated. I recommend holding out and saving your money for something better.

good performance, but...

is movement 3 (credo) really supposed to be that fast? when I performed it, it was almost half that speed in this recording, it just sounds awkward. I might be wrong excellent piece, overall though

I found a previous comment about microphone placement to be accurate, but the performance of the Mass in G is superb enough to put up with it.

Mozart's masses, his earlier ones, tend to be all one tempo, whereas Haydn tended to slow the melancholy parts and speed up during the triumphant parts of the credo. The person who commented on it being awkwardly fast in tempo... Well, often high schools and certain junior orchestras will drag the tempo in certain movements, which both irritates and infuriates me. So I prefer the faster tempo. If the skill of the choir and orchestra are up to it, it is how it was meant to be.

At that time an international trend was developing to establish permanent orchestras of between 30 and 60 members, smaller than the usual symphony orchestra, but the right size to play many Classical- and Baroque-era works and numerous works for smaller orchestras composed in the twentieth century. Although many of the founding...
