I purchased this boxed set to complete my collection of the Sequentia recordings at a bargain price. Sequentia originally made these recordings for BMG, and the boxed set is now distributed by Sony. The three BMG recordings of Sequentia which I already own came with full sung texts in Latin and English; so I assumed that this boxed set would also contain the full sung texts. But it doesn't contain any of the texts, and I guess some genius in Sony's marketing deptartment decided that by omitting the texts, Sony could maximize its profit.
It would have made for greater customer satisfaction, I suggest, to have offered the full texts on a separate CD-ROM, even if this meant an additional cost to the consumer. To be fair, the box itself and the disc jackets do meet industry standards. And to conclude my review, never again will I purchase a boxed set of vocal music from Sony unless I am certain, beforehand, that it contains the full vocal texts. How else can the listener make sense of the singing?
Buyer beware: this set is not a bargain without sung texts unless you already have access to a copy of the texts or know them by heart. Shame on you, Sony!
