Format: Audio CD
That's one of my favourite collections of DG's Beethoven edition.

It contains a fantastic recordings of famous and not so famous works of the greatest Compositor , Beethoven.

First the 3 cantatas are very interesting for listenning becouse the contains melodies which Beethoven use in his more famous works as Fidelio , Eroica and Egmont.

But Missa Solemnis is the best work in this collection not only becouse that mass is the greatest even written , but olso of the recording.The voice of Placido Domingo contains so passion , expecially in "Credo-Et homo factus est" that you feel that Beethoven is near you and he's talking to you.

I recommend this collection to everybody who loves classical music and of course BEETHOVEN!

Format: MP3 Music
This is by far the best Beethoven set I have and I have dozens.

I've been listening to this set every week for years and it never gets boring.

Beethoven is the greatest composer of choral music, and here in one place you can get all of his best choral music.

Missa Solemnis is the greatest piece of music ever written. Beethoven himself said that Missa Solemnis was his greatest composition. Who are we to argue with Beethoven?

You must listen to Missa Solemnis dozens of times before you really "get it". It is very complicated, very long, and has almost no repetition. The first 25 times you listen to it you may be confused or not get it. Don't give up. Keep listening to it and one day you too will realize it is the greatest piece of music ever written by anyone.

Christ on the Mount of Olives is excellent. It surprising to me that it is not a well known piece considering how good it is.

Mass in C is excellent, but no Missa Solemnis.

Everything else on here is good or great.

If you love music, buy this now.

If you love choral music and don't have this, you have yet to find out what choral music really is.
