"If nothing else, this is a recording for people who think they've lost the capacity to be amazed… The performance is not only vivid and meticulous but also blazes with inner conviction, as if all of the more than four hundred performers were fully aware that they were taking part in an historic event. And that – unmistakably – is what this recording is: a milestone in American musical history."
