Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Theresienmesse followed on a year after the Nelson Mass. It may be less famous but the inspiration is hardly less memorable. George Guest injects tremendous vigour into the music and the St John's Choir is on top form throughout. Michael Haydn's Ave Regina is a lovely antiphon, scored for eight-part double choir. It looks back to Palestrina, and the Venetian school of the Gabrielis and the young Monteverdi. It is beautifully sung and recorded.
