How can I describe my spending of two and a half hours listening to the Holy Grail of classical music...? With such a magnificent group of performers like the Seraphic Fire and Firebird Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Patrick Dupre Quigley, it is quite impossible to go wrong. I have attended in the past to a couple of their renderings of sacred music-(Rachmaninoff Orthodox All Night Vigil and Brahms' Requiem, for which they just received a Grammy nomination), but here they just outdid themselves big time. The Missa was sublime.

the Holy Grail of classical music

That's just how I feel about the B Minor Mass. From time to time I am tempted to put either Wagner's Ring or ironically the Art of Fugue on that highest of pedestals, but in the end I always come back to that other-Mr-B's Mass.
