Reviews

... Die vielfältige Literaturkenntnis von Frieder Bernius und seinem Stuttgarter Kammerchor garantiert dabei eine stilistische Treffsicherheit sondergleichen, ohne auch nur den Hauch von Historismus spüren zu lassen. Zusammen mit den Musikern der Bamberger eine Chormusikplatte par excellence. Detailqualitäten von Chor und Solisten sind hinreichend bekannt. Wem nicht, der soll diese CD anhören.
Musica Sacra 3/1988

 

... Frieder Bernius and his Stuttgarters are known for their complete set of Schubert masses. They are as good here. Members of the Bamberg Symphony play beautifully in the Christus, and an organ turns up (finally!) in the motet. If you like Elijah, you'll want this.
