True, the chorus doesn't break out with tambourines, but they could hardly be more intense and engaged in the music. I think Santa Fe Listener's requirements for exuberant rapturous transport are somewhat misplaced in Bach's treatment of the mass. I've sung this work in two choirs under pretty good conductors. Our manner was somewhat more demonstrative but certainly not as cultivated as this choir, which is as alert, energetic, and well-controlled as a choir can be. They sing carefully and beautifully. Soaring is the listener's job, in my opinion, and this performance makes that easy.

It takes a digital recording to reveal the choral parts fully. Klemperer 's soloists are wonderful but his chorus sounds muddy.

This B minor Mass from 2000 constitutes the third of four versions from Rilling. For better or worse, the Suttgart-based conductor wears the mantle passed down by traditional Bach specialists on the order of Forster, Richter and Gonnenwein. Anyone who remembers how Bach sounded before the period-performance revolution will recognize the hallmarks of the tradition: a sense of reverence, large-scaled choirs, modern instruments, and generally slower tempos. In an age where quite the opposite is now the norm and Bach has been stripped of reverence, it takes a conservative like Rilling to deliver a performance that doesn't skip and scamper its way to the end. The downside is that he is a routine conductor, and even the Gramophone, who gave this recording high praise, admitted that his restraint could be maddening.

The last thing I want is Bach played with decorum; the grandeur of the B minor Mass is written into the score, and one only has to listen to the great toccatas and fugues for organ to be assured that his intentions were enormous, not puny. But style has moved away from religious awe, and the pickings are slim if you want Bach as a cosmic visionary. The famous Klemperer account of the B minor Mass (EMI) still holds up quite well except in the matter of tempos, where he can be fairly glacial. Rilling has updated his pacing, so that we get the Gloria in excelsis Deo in 2:43 min., which is almost exactly how the HIP readings go. In general, however, the vocal solos and duets are only sped up marginally and do not sound rushed.

The great advantage of this version are the vocal soloists. The women are strong, but it's the two lower male voices, Thomas Quasthoff and Andreas Schmidt, who most impressed me.

Bach in the hands of the great director Rilling is something you must hear, feel, taste. The choir sounds great and lifts you to where the intentions of the author was. This Mass is very profound, you feel like if you were in the church, back several centuries.
Music you must have and hear, a good medicine for your spirit.

This recording is quite lovely. The pace is appropriate, the tone is
excellent. The singing is beautiful. I was disappointed though with
the pronunciation. They are not using the Latin pronunciation but I
think it is the German. Our chorus always uses the Latin and it is a
bit off-putting but not enough to make a big difference. I don't know
if I missed seeing this mentioned. If I had, I would have chosen Helmuth Rilling's other
recording of this piece, which I prefer.
