"The RIAS Chamber Choir produce a fine quality of homogenous tone and, under Marcus Creed, show themselves fully responsive to both words and music.The RIAS disc remains a strong recommendation, especially for its inclusion of the surviving Missa Canonica fragments." Gramophone on the Brahms Choral Works

"Herreweghe has the measure of the mighty work. Everything, even the slow Kyrie, carries intense conviction. The Dona nobis, so difficult to get right, rounds off ideally a performance in which all participants seem moved by a single impulse." Sunday Times Records of the Year 2005 on the Beethoven Missa Solemnis

"[Gura's] partnership with Dutch pianist Jan Schultz is consolidated here with highly intelligent, deeply felt accounts of Schumann's two immortal song cycles....Gura's dashing, dynamic Dichterliebe even invites comparison with Fritz Wunderlich." The Observer on the Schumann Lieder
