Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Happy in the coupling as in the performance, both Masses are radiant with energy, the Sancti Nicolai serene in its bliss, the Theresienmesse adding splendour and expansiveness. The G major Mass, with its shortened texts for Gloria and Credo, has a pastoral tint, anticipating early in the December of 1772 the adoration of the shepherds in the Christmas to come: courtly shepherds, one might think, with a sanctity that is not at all averse to the tribute of a good tune and a dancing rhythm. When gaiety gives way to gravity, as in the Agnus Dei, there is no sense that the one is more or less profound than the other; the joy 'matters' quite as much as the 'seriousness', and it is to joy that the Mass returns in its ''Dona nobis pacem''. Read more The Theresienmesse of 1799, a masterpiece on a larger scale, exhilarates in its vitality of invention and is effortlessly graceful in its formal control."

-- Gramophone [1/1994]
