Notes and Editorial Reviews

As with most of Haydn's masses, the Missa Cellensis is more well known by its alias,"Cäcilienmesse" (Cecilia Mass), rather than by its original name. With its unusually large orchestra and a duration of almost one hour, this composition is the longest and most extensive of Haydn's masses. For quite some time now, Jos van Immerseel and his Ensemble Anima Eterna have enjoyed an outstanding reputation for presenting their unique and special type of historical performance practice: For the present recording they employed Vienna wind instruments and the string instruments are modeled on instruments from the Viennese classical period. In the unique acoustic setting of the Dresdner Frauenkirche their truly brilliant recording of the Missa Read more Cellensis has initiated the Carus series of the complete masses of Joseph Haydn.
