Format: Audio CD
What a wonderful selection of pieces on this CD, including motets and a glorious mass not often recorded. The sound is warm and sumptuous and the singing committed and generally uplifting.

However, the Vienna Vocal Consort does have some intonation problems. Most of the motets come off well, with the odd uncomfortable moment. For me, the biggest disappointment comes in the beautiful mass. For example, when the Kyrie eleison returns after the Christe eleison, all of a sudden the pitch is quite markedly different. One presumes that neither the recording engineers nor the director took time to make sure that the different sections matched pitch-wise. There are other similar (though less drastic) problems elsewhere. The result is quite disconcerting which is all the more disappointing when the music itself is so special. I am sure that this group has great potential, but this disc leaves room for improvement.
