Mass in B minor by Enescu

Paul Dirmeikis wrote (May 3, 2004):
I received this morning Berkshire Record Outlet's last catalogue, and I saw a 1951 Mass in B minor BBC recording, conducted by Enescu, with Kathleen Ferrier and Peter Pears. Three great names.

Does someone know this recording and have comments ?

In my review of Early Recordings of MBM, I included a short paragraph about Enescu's recording. See: http://www.bach-cantatas.com/VD/BWV232-Part6.htm

Philip Peters wrote (May 4, 2004):
[To Aryeh Oron] I just read those remarks and I agree with most of it. But there is some georgeous singing there, mainly by Danco and Ferrier. I should play it again, it's been quite a while, but I seem to remember that I didn't like Pears much in this repertoire - and I do like him in many other pieces of later dates.

John Pike wrote (May 6, 2004):
[To Paul Dirmeikis] I have this recording. Outstanding performance.
