. . . [Gardiner] has a team of soloists without weaknesses, and, it must be added, his own genius for making all things new . . . Gardiner's singers bring meaning and urgency to their cries of "Kyrie" . . . Here the balance is right, and separation of the various elements has been achieved without exaggeration or any sense of unnaturalness. It is indeed an outstanding recording in every respect . . . [the exhilarating effect of Gardiner's approach is] felt most magically of all in the "Et vitam venturi" fugues. Each of the soloists contributes fine work, and they are an entirely homogeneous quartet . . . [the soloists] trailblaze a kind of joyful liberation from the limitations of choral music that carries the choir in its wake . . . I can't think of a more unaffectedly affecting "Benedictus" on disc. It goes around my head for days afterwards . . .
