The performance values are extremely high with this blu-ray release, and the technical achievements equally so.
Recording technicians have had trouble with Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, because of the wide-ranging dynamics inherent in the piece. Unlike the last symphony, which starts softly, the contemporaneously composed Missa Solemnis starts out (after a brief orchestral prelude) with very loud choral singing--over which the soloists have to introduce themselves and make themselves heard. That is only the challenge of the first few bars of music. The challenge continues through the next eighty minutes. Here all four soloists sing beautifully and and do not strain, even though this appears to be a live performance with applause and "bravos" at the end, and there is no distortion or congestion of the massed choral forces, who consistently maintain an accurate pitch. Many hours of rehearsal no doubt went into this performance, and the hand of a strong director is clearly at work.
Enoch von Guttenberg has been proving himself one of the world's finest directors of choral classics for the past twenty years. In the 1990's he recorded the two big Bach Passions and the Christmas Oratorio in performances that were released on Laserdisc. In 1997 he recorded the Bach Mass in a very fine way, released on DVD. Several years ago he again recorded the Matthew Passion, which appeared on DVD-Audio. Now his rendition of the Missa Solemnis appears on Blu-ray (from the same studio that released the previous DVDA). Every one of these releases approaches the rank of definitive performance, though clearly most of the results have been stuffed into technological dead ends from which it is difficult to retrieve them at this time.

The performances and recording are very good. I'm withholding a star only because I haven't been able to listen to the Pure Audio version as much as I'd like. After one flawless play, my BD player has developed an issue with this disc and sets up a white noise sound that completely drowns out the music. The issue seems only to be with my player as I've tested the disc on other systems and it's fine. I'm a little mystified by the problem and have tried adjusting every setting I can find. However it played beautifully once, and I'm sure it will again when I sort out this issue. Luckily the package comes with a regular CD version which I've been listening to in the car with great pleasure. I'm keen for the Pure Audio format to take off and not go the way of DVD-A, or the faltering SACD (faltering in marketing terms).

The one star has nothing to do with the performance which is excellent. It is because no where in Amazon publication there is any hint about this being and audio blu-ray only. I am sorry, it has a picture where the names and the current chapter are indicated. Anyway you get a blu-ray disc and a CD. Both with the same music. If you split them to two persons then the price is reasonable. The problem is that you have one jewel-box. You have to buy another one.
