    Just passing here to say thanks to Clayton. This is my first contact with Monteverdi, and what a start. Great, great stuff.

    It was probably 45 or 50 years ago that I would have first heard the Bach B-Minor Mass. I'm still listening to it regularly. Never gets old.

    I bought this some time ago but haven't got round to listening to it much. Like much of Jacobs work it is quirky with a wonderfully paced opening chorus. I was a bit concerned about the balance as Jacobs has argued for an elongated spatial sound in addition to the usual stereo right and left. However, as with everything Jacobs does, nothing is routine!

    I've listened to Bruckner's Mass in E Minor a couple of times this week. Transcending performance at the following link:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmrl...spfzpS&index=1

    Choir: Rundfunkchor Berlin
    Conductor: Heinz Rögner
    Orchestra: Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin
    Soloist: Magdalena Hajossyova
    Soloist: Rosemarie Lang
    Soloist: Peter-Jürgen Schmidt
    Soloist: Hermann Christian Polster

    You'll also find Bruckner's Te Deum in C Major at that link on the same playlist. Also beautifully performed. It's a "must listen". Opens up in grand fashion. I'll be picking up this CD for the library.

    I have spent the last week enjoying the best of

    Bach, J S: St Matthew Passion, BWV244

    St Matthew Passion, BWV244 - Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Arnold Schoenberg Chor.jpg St Matthew Passion, BWV244 - John Eliot Gardiner, The English Baroque Soloists, The Monteverdi C.jpg

    St Matthew Passion, BWV244 - Masaaki Suzuki, Bach Collegium Japan.jpg St Matthew Passion, BWV244b (Early Version) - Peter Seymour, Yorkshire Baroque Soloists.jpg

    I will say I enjoyed them all but above all stands the Harnoncourt recording which has a wonderful feeling of warmth and power that completely redefined the piece to me.

    I'm listening to Haydn's Missa in Angustiis as I type, and the soprano does a nice job. Her name name is Berit Solset, from Norway. Below is the first 4:33 of the Mass...just a short clip:

    One month of just only Morton Feldman music and that's been sacred to me.

    I've never heard the Bruckner E Minor Mass before. It's wonderful. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    As soon as I heard the Kyrie it immediately reminded me of Tchaikovsky's Cherubic Hymn from the Liturgy of St John Chrysostom

    Tchaikovsky - Liturgy of St John Chrysostom, Op. 31: Hymn of the Cherubim


    His choral works - sacred or secular - are amazing.

    Tchaikovsky - Sleeping Golden Cloud

    Tchaikovsky is one of my favorite composers, yet I had never heard of these 2 works before. Thank you for posting them, Metairi!
