Critical Mass

I've linked once before to the BBC docu-drama on Beethoven from a few years back that really is pretty good,  especially in light of other LvB-related film treatments.  Here is a terrific nine-minute segment mainly about the writing of the Missa Solemnis, with key excerpts.

  1. I wonder what recording they used. Sounds incredible! I have the Gardiner version, which I love because the period instruments highlight the lean contrapuntal textures better.
