The genius of this recording is not only Hogwood's musicianship, evident in abundance, but the meticulous balance of soloists who shun showy virtuosity in favor of purity of vocal line . . . this Pure Audio disc is simply better in every conceivable way. The dynamic range is broader, the soundstage is deeper, and the voices receive warmth that was simply lacking on the red book CDs. Small orchestral details emerge with a clarity that was less audible on the CDs . . . The booklet alone is worth the premium price for this three-disc set . . . Highly recommended.

With some of the best singers of the day and inspired direction from Hogwood, it's hardly dated . . . The Blu-ray sounds smoother and more open . . .

. . . [c'est] grâce aux idées claires en toutes circonstances de Christopher Hogwood que chaque rythme, chaque accent tombait dans les plis-droit au but, en toute souplesse. La "Nativité" et la "Résurrection" profitent-ils davantage que le volet central de la fraicheur dominante? A un (immense) détail près, le pudique et terrible "He was despised" de Carolyn Watkinson. Disque célèbre . . .
