The combination of ideal, sympathetic soloists and the combined CM90 choral and orchestral forces led the way to an enourmously successful series, which received ecstatic reviews across the globe. It is with delight that we are now able to offer these works for the first time as an 8-CD collectors' set at special price. In his survey of Haydn's late masses, Richard Hickox offers performances which consistently bring out the freshness and originality of the writing, and are seen by many as the definitive version of these works.
