"Pristine does a superb job of making transfers from vinyl pressings that sound as clean as the original tapes might do ... The monks of Beuron won renown for the Archiv label by their performances of Gregorian chant, which were regarded by many critics as preferable to the standard established at Solesmes. Since their interpretations, based on Dom Mocquereau's principles, were similar, one can only guess that the German accents were a fresh sound after so many French accents from Solesmes and other monasteries..." - Fanfare, 2012
