. . . superior performances that -- as I know from long experience with some of them -- stand up well under repeated hearings . . . this still remains a reference set and essential cornerstone to any collection of Bruckner's major choral works . . . A devout Roman Catholic like Bruckner, Jochum had a positively elemental identification with the composer and his sound world . . . his sense of the long architectural spans of three Masses and the "Te Deum" is to my mind unrivaled . . . they build up a tremendous head of steam, like a giant freight train hurtling unstoppably down the tracks to a final destination. Another plus is that in each case Jochum has a team of soloists unmatched for excellence, with tenor Emst Haefliger and soprano Maria Stader being the crucial linchpins . . . these versions remain essential acquisitions, and are emphatically recommended.
