I have a DG cd that has her (along with, among others, Edith Mathis) doing
Bruckner masses 1,2 & 3. The conductor is Eugen Jochum and the orchestra
the Bavarian Radio Symphony. Here it's the orchestra that shines, as it
should under a conductor who excelled at religious music and at handling
Bruckner. But the two sopranos contribute measurably.
