Phew! Having purchased the Simon Rattle version and then returned it in short order (beautifully performed, appallingly recorded), I found the recommendation for this on the Gramophone website. And it is gorgeous.

The sound is full and rich and lovely and the performance is magnificent. The Monteverdi Choir are obviously keen that their own label (SDG - an imprint of the Hyperion label) reflects their own high standards and I am fairly confident that they won't have been disappointed by this.

I would like to state that the five stars I've given this disc are for its own sake and not because of the relief I feel after the disappointment of the Rattle recording. That would qualify it for a sixth star.

Amazingly it is something like 20 years since John Eliot Gardiner last recorded this for Philips. In that time his interpretation has not changed significantly, but recording quality has improved a bit giving a clarity that was missing from that earlier version. If you have the earlier one I wouldn't necessarily replace it, but if you have not then this is well worth acquiring. But if you don't have an 'original instrument' version at all then definitely get this - you will hear things that are usually lost in the mush of overbearing orchestration.

When I heard this, I thought, this just has to be one of the best recordings of this work that’s out there! Strongly recommend

Love this piece after discovering it recently. However this recording isn't if the highest quality with a fair degree of hiss and noise. I also realise I should have gone for a CD version rather than MP3 download as the audio quality is superior. I'm happy with this as an introduction to the work but will be looking for a better quality version

This is a good recording of some lovely music. Quick delivery, very satisfied.
It is quite unecessary to add anything further.

If you like your Brahms slow and steady do not go for this, but I love it! The quality of the recording and the choir is brilliant.
