Description: The date and purpose of this 46-minute mass are uncertain but it is a great new example of those large-scale pieces with five choirs of vocalists and instrumentalists arranged all around a big cathedral. There are five organists! Recorded in the Abbey Church of Muri in north-central Switzerland, this is a sound spectacular. Cappella Murensis, Les Cornets Noirs; Johannes Strobl.
