"...truly passionate version based on the exceptional cohesion between the choir, orchestra and soloists, unified in the same will to be in service of this galvanizing music. (...) Soloists seem to be in perfect harmony with the composition. This is, without question, the leading recording and reference not only in the field of Zelenka music."
(R9 de Classica-Répertoire, Jean-Noël Coucoureux, IX/2008)

"...It was the most excellent concert that we could hear at the Festival de Sablé in 2007. (...) interprets were prodigious..." (www.classiquenews.com, 2007, Festival de Sablé)

"Václav Luks directs the Officium defunctorum with ample dramatic energy; Collegium 1704’s players and choir perform with lyricism and precision. The extraordinary invitatory sequence has some astonishing dramatic gestures in its orchestral ritornellos, and alto Markéta Cukrová and the excellent choir interleave fluently. (...) A fabulous masterpiece is unveiled."
