No account of the Coronation Mass possesses a more considered sense of style than Christopher Hogwood's . . . Even more importantly, the interpretation is not just light on its feet but full of energy and, where necessary drama -- the period-instrument players and dynamically purposive direction combine to create an indelible sense of identity . . . such important moments as the "Et incarnatus est" maintain a real sense of mystery . . . The treble-like qualities of Emma Kirkby's soprano, in particular, shine out in the only extended solo, the Agnus Dei . . . in which her trills and decoration are flawlessly delivered.
