Notes and Editorial Reviews

The value of this set, for me anyway, lies in the lesser-known pieces rather than the famous ones. Of course, the big works aren’t badly done, but everyone will have their own favorite version of the Requiem, C minor Mass, and Exsultate, jubilate (though Barbara Bonney is very fine in this latter work). Mozart wrote a great deal of sacred music, most of it under duress, but the various litanies and vespers settings contain a lot of very beautiful music and he seems to have taken them more seriously than the Masses, particularly those of the “Brevis” variety. It may be that the texts of these other pieces simply offered more musical possibilities, particularly when Mozart was freed of the need to squish the entire Gloria and Credo into just Read more a couple of minutes. Anyway, as an example of the period-performance movement operating at its best, this set is self-recommending.
