…one of the features of the Rheinische Kantorei is its excellent delivery. Its director, Hermann Max, pays much attention to this aspect. As a result it is pretty easy to understand the text, even in tutti sections with full orchestra. Max has a good ear in selecting the soloists for his performances and recordings, and that is also the case here. Mária Zádori has frequently worked with him and knows what to do. The other singers are all stylish; Kai Wessel is particularly good in the ‘Gloria Patri’ from the Miserere.
