'Two budget recordings of this underrated mass stand out … My own favourite, the more dramatic 1995 version conducted by Matthew Best. He conjures a prayerful mood for the Kyrie and Andante, and a fierce exultation in the Gloria and Credo. Orchestra and chorus are incisive, and the balance ensures that you hear all Beethoven's woodwind detail, not least his inspired touches of bassoon colouring' (The Daily Telegraph)

'A fascinating CD' (The Recorder, USA)
