Review: Neville Cohn “Challenging Mass”, West Australian, 10 Feb. 1997, ‘Today’: 5. “It was an inspiration on the part of the ABC programmers to entrust the first ever account of Janacék’s Mass by the WASO to Albert Rosen … If the 160-strong Intervarsity Festival Choir’s treatment of the word ‘Hosanna’ in the Sanctus sounded disappointingly tame, its response to the rest of the section was generally excellent as was its presentation of the Kyrie earlier in the piece; its reverential, hushed singing here was an object lesson in what fine ensemble singing is all about. And in the Gloria, an essay in joyous shouting, both choir and tenor Horst Hoffman … sang as if to the manner born.”
