Notes and Editorial Reviews

Michel Corboz (Mirare) to the best of my knowledge has not previously recorded a great deal of Schubert’s sacred music, but a lifetime of experience plus the presence of the Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne, which he founded, result in a moving interpretation. The Chamber Orchestra of Lausanne is also a major contributor to the success, but this is the product of musicians who frequently work together. Perhaps it is the live occasion that has everyone on his toes, so that the occasional blemish (the sibilant s of “eleison,” for example) can readily be ignored.
