    The music was splendid, in a beautiful setting. And the crypts are something to see.

    Fantastic performance in a spectacular setting. The music was very moving, and it was well worth the ticket price!

    A nice tour in the museum and the utterly strange capuchin crypt. The four person group of singers was good but not top. Especially the soprano who sang too loud and often a little too high.

    Wir sind häufige Konzertbesucher und für uns war dieser Event ausgezeichnet besetzt. Die Stimmen waren sehr gut und daher konnten vom einstimmigen gregorianischen Choral bis zur Mehrstimmigkeit ins 16. Jahrhundert ein großer Bogen kompetent wiedergegeben werden. Also nur weiterzuempfehlen!
