Notes and Editorial Reviews

It was in Rio de Janeiro in 1817, that Neukomm composed this monumental mass intended to salute King Jao VI's accession to the throne of Portugal and Brazil at the grand ceremony of acclamation that was to take place a year later. But the work was suppressed for murky political reasons, and since then the manuscript has slumbered among the two thousand or so works bequeathed to France by its composer. After the "Libera me" he added to the Rio version of Mozart's Requiem and the Funeral service, this live recording continues Jean Claude Malgoire's systematic exploration of the masterpieces of an unjustly forgotten composer.
