Review By John Miller,SA-CD.net,November 2012

…this recording was made in what is probably an optimal venue for the capture of a Mahler Eighth performance.

Stentz recruited no less than six choirs to his musical roster, much the same line-up as his well-praised Resurrection Symphony…Local to Cologne and nearby Bonn they are…very well-trained and experienced. The children’s choir is excellent, bright and energetic, especially in the Gloria of Part 1 and the Young Angels section in Part 2…Stenz’s somewhat…modest ensemble still produced a thrilling mass tone at climaxes, also managing the very soft, slow interludes with equal finesse.
