During his years in Salzburg, Mozart wrote a series of shorter mass settings, for which he drew on the models of his senior colleague Michael Haydn. Regina coeli reveals his supreme skill at writing for the solo voice. The Missa brevis in D, K. 194 is a work of great solemnity, employing a remarkable range of expressive contrasts, whilst the Missa brevis in B flat, K. 275 is notable for its sublime lyricism and grace. The Allegro and Andante in F minor, K. 608 is regarded as Mozart’s finest work for the organ and has become one of the cornerstones of the organ repertory.

The church music Mozart wrote in Salzburg is both ingenious and expressive, and has wide appeal. Our disc expands the choral focus.

BBC Music Magazine

April 2013

****

“Both [Masses] are performed with energy, clarity and poise by the St Albans Cathedral Choir and the Sinfonia Verdi...The penultimate section is exquisitely lovely, and finely sung by Elizabeth Cragg.”

Gramophone Magazine

April 2013

“The stars of the show are, of course, the choir; and on this evidence the choral tradition at St Albans is in rude health, the tone consistent and untiring. The soloists blend well...if further recordings of this repertoire emanate from these quarters, this is sure to be worth collecting.”

International Record Review

May 2013

“With an excellent quartet of soloists and expert playing from the period-instrument group Sinfonia Verdi, it remains only to hand out plaudits to the choir, which is clearly in excellent shape under Lucas's direction...The treble line is pure and confidently dispatched.”
