I bought this album a little over a year ago, but I've only just come to love it as much as I should. The performance itself is absolutely superb. Each voice in the chorus is vibrant, colourful, and has is easily distinguishable from all the others while still blending into perfect harmony. The instruments are present throughout and never drowned out by the voices, as is a problem with other similar recordings. Obviously, the recording- from a technical standpoint- is flawless. It's just you and the music. Nothing to distract or annoy in this recording! But that doesn't mean it lacks atmosphere- quite on the contrary.
The music is the real gem here, as good as the direction and performers are. Mozart makes every second of your time worth it. He takes you through every mood and feeling you can imagine. In one movement it's jubilant and glorious, the next it's foreboding, and the next wistful. There's something here for you, no matter what you're in the mood for.
In summation: Worth every red cent! It's a must-have for anyone and everyone.

The Naxos label is famous for bringing great music to the masses at a great price. One should buy this recording for that reason alone. It is a quality recording with accurate tempi and above average performers. Though I have heard more moving performances of this work, this recording can be quite fulfilling for those who appreciate classical music and for those wishing to increase their music library.

One of the best collections of Mozart around. Anyone who likes Monteverdi's Dixit Dominus collection should have this classic Mozart take on Dixit and Magnificat.

Very nice. Beautiful music, excellent quality. This was also sung by my girlfriend's choir, though I wasn't able to attend. I also write music, and my girlfriend thought I had copied (plagiarized) from Solemn Vespers, since she thought some passages in a piece I had written sounded very much like it. At that time, I had never (knowingly) heard Solemn Vespers before. I said that I would listen to it to check for myself. That is why I purchased the CD.

Incidentally, after listening to Solemn Vespers and to the piece in question that I had written, I could find nothing in one that sounded like the other. (Perhaps that is because I am not as critical and attentive a musician as my girlfriend is.) But I still have the CD of a job well done.
