Beethoven Missa Solemnis: Donath, Soffell, Jerusalem, Sotin, Edinburgh Festival Chorus, Solti LPO live London Prom 1982 LPO/BBC issue

When this performance was notified for issue recently, I put a post onto the New Releases thread advertising it. I then sat back and eagerly awaited its arrival. i was in the performance and below I have copied from an ancient thread on conductors where I wrote the following.

What might have been....


How exciting to have been in the performance and how nice to hear about it!
Maybe a better copy will turn up somewhere...

Goodness gracious me, Rod ?? 

I'm happy to hear you heard it - good job!  :)


Better than Suzuki's.

Great review, Mike!  Thanks :)

I'm still looking for that Holy Grail, on period instruments.

This recent issue by Br├╝ggen's old orchestra has also gathered some positive reviews - anyone here heard it?  :)

I like it, although not as much as the second Gardiner one. I have not heard Suzuki for comparison.
