The so-called "Lord Nelson" Mass dates from 1798 when the composer was 66 and in the middle of an autumnal creative outburst that included "The Seasons", "The Creation" and the three great late Masses. Two stories explaining the origins of the popular nick-name for the dramatic Missa in angustiis (Mass in time of anguish) exist - one that the work was written at the time of the sea battle at Aboukir Bay, another that the great Admiral himself attended a performance in 1800. Haydn's Mass in B-flat Major, which he wrote in 1801 to celebrate the name day of Princess Maria Hermenegild Esterhazy whose husband, Prince Nikolaus Esterhazy, employed Haydn as his Kapellmeister. Written for orchestra, choir and soloists, this mass was nicknamed the "Creation Mass" because it quotes a few measures from Haydn's "The Creation" oratorio.

Berlioz: Grande Messe des Morts, Op. 5 (Requiem)

Berlioz: Grande Messe des Morts, Op. 5 (Requiem)


“Norrington's approach is pensive, sober and funereal-but it's so well paced that the sense of inevitability underlines man's mortality, and the outbursts when they do come are more effective for their comparative restraint...a reminder that the first performance was in church, not on a concert hall stage.” Andrew McGregor, bbc.co.uk, 8th May 2006

“"Truly it was of frightening greatness," wrote Berlioz after the Requiem 's première. The massed timpani of the "Tuba mirum" produced an "indescribable shock". The chief priest wept uncontrollably, while one of the choral singers suffered a nervous breakdown. Thankfully, there seems to have been no such casualty among the singers in this "live" performance from Stuttgart. The rich, ample acoustics of the Beethovensaal give full value to Berlioz's vast spatial effects, most spectacularly the four brass bands that herald the timpani onslaught in the "Tuba mirum". Yet Norrington's concern for clarity of line and articulation, and the carefully judged balances, mean that we hear far more than usual of Berlioz's brilliant and bizarre orchestral detail. Norrington's dramatic urgency, allied to choral singing of thrilling body and bite, make the apocalyptic movements duly overwhelming. No less moving is the choir's luminous delicacy in the "Quid sum miser" and "Quaerens me" - music of Cistercian purity and austerity - while Toby Spence brings a calm, rapt beauty to the cruelly high solo in the "Sanctus". A magnificent achievement, to be set alongside Colin Davis's recordings of this awesome work.” The Telegraph
