    Sampling this lovely set on Spotify, considering a future purchase. Does anyone have this set?



    And starting this slowly. I've heard this mass once before but didn't really "listen"
    Composer in Focus: Franz Schubert

    "When all hopes of recognition or honor have faded into distant memory, when purity of heart meets sorrow of mind, when all the world seems to walk in blindness and yet a man works without wearying for that which he loves...only in this moment is passion truly understood"

    This Mass is probably one of the best pieces of music ever written together with St Matthew Passions.
    I haven't listened to Cherubini with Muti, but it must be a nice set.

    I'm joining you on Spotify. I don't have the set, but it looks very enticing.

    Currently being gobsmacked by this album. I've only listened for about 20 minutes but this is the best Creation I've ever heard!!(of all my experience of three whole versions ) Just wonderful, bright, energetic and intense.

    I'm just now in my musical journey starting to explore conductors specifically, and Sir Colin Davis is on the radar. (I've obviously HEARD of him before and heard some stuff but this is the first time I've really sat up and paid attention!)

    Cherubini, Requiem in D minor.

    This came in the mail as we arrived home from my wife's grandmother's funeral. It seems fitting to hear it now.

    Not as arresting as the bigger sacred work but lovely nonetheless
