Beethoven's Missa Solemnis

I have discovered an awesome link to "Beethoven's Missa Solemnis" performed by a German Choir in Germany.

Here it is.

"The Choir of the Witten/Herdecke University performs Beethoven’s Missa solemnis, a piece that stands with Bach’s Mass in B Minor as the most significant mass setting in classical music. Beethoven himself called it his greatest achievement.

It was Beethoven's Finest Achievement in 1923 when he was done with it and at that time, there was nothing like it".

For all those who would like to know more about Beethoven's Missa Solemnis -- here is an interesting link.
