"Something that's been around for 500 years couldn't be that bad - and the Vienna Boys Choir is no exception. These boys can sing! Their performance of selections from Mozart's Requiem, the Ave Maria, and Handel's Messiah are all spectacular. Boys' voices add a certain extra degree of authenticity not provided by women's voices. It makes it sound a little more like it did when Mozart or Handel wrote it (or at least I think it does - it's not like I was there). I'm not a huge choral fan but I did enjoy this CD. If you enjoy choral music, definitely acquire this disc. If you tolerate choral music or classical music, give this one a try. If you like neither choral music nor classical music, what are you doing in the classical music section?"
You have to get this cd

"I'm a vienna boys choir fan since 15 years, I admire them in my city too, Torreon, México, I have listened hundreds times and it has very beatiful songs and the choir is great, principaly requiems and OF COURSE, the ex-vienna boy chor song's by Shubert, AVE MARIA, it's great, you feel an enormous peace, you simply can not stop listening, again and again and again, I think, you have to get this cd. The solist boy has a beatiful voice. It is an excellent work. Maybe, depends on your city or country, you have to wait several weeks but you have to get this one!"
