Notes and Editorial Reviews

Another superb set of Haydn Masses from Sir John Eliot Gardiner and his magnificent Monteverdi Choir. It would be nice to think that Haydn penned a Mass in honour of the great Admiral Nelson but he finished what is now called the Nelson Mass before news of the British defeat of the French at Aboukir reached Vienna and the Mass appears to have acquired its nickname only after a visit by the Admiral and Lady Hamilton to the Esterhazy Court in 1800. Whatever the associations, it's one of Haydn's finest creations and in the hands of such an experienced choral conductor as Gardiner it comes up as new in its thrilling originality.
