  2. ^ John Potter website "The Sound & the Fury - For the last three years John Potter, Richard Wistreich and Thomas Bauer have met in Bressanone (Brixen) to perform and record the music of Gombert. Brixen (in northern Italy) is twinned with Thomas Bauer’s home town of Regensburg and the group, expanded by up to six other German singers, has been known as the Vokalsolisten Ratisbona. The mixture of live concert and rehearsal recordings has produced two CDs for ORF, and on the current release the ensemble found itself renamed The Sound and the Fury. Two more CDs are now complete and the group will reassemble in Vienna in September to record two Ockeghem masses, also for ORF."
