    Today I've listened to Miserere by Allegri with A sei voci, the whole album with also a mass and some motets.

    Verdi: Requiem

    Orchestra e coro del Teatro alla Scala, Milan, Daniel Barenboim


    The Times

    13th September 2013

    ****

    “The magnificent full-throated chorus project in a manner liable to rip off the La Scala roof. And the soloists too trail opera glory...Barenboim, meanwhile, does everything to encourage bold attack from players and singers; even his pauses tremble. All told, it’s a thrilling account.”

    I just received Schubert's complete masses in the mail yesterday. Also got Haydn's complete masses.

    These (except for some mozart ones I've heard a while back) are two of the first sacred musical collections I own. Of the Schubert set (of which I've only listened to 3 of the 4 discs so far) the 5th mass really stands out above the earlier ones, without a doubt. The 3rd is pretty good too but wow that 5th one makes all of the earlier ones look pale in comparison. Looking forward to checking out the 4th disc tonight.

    I don't know what this music is in the background, but it's very nice. If anyone knows,
    please let us all know.

    Verdi: Messa per Rossini
    written with 13 other composers

    Gabriela Benackova-Capova, Florence Quivar, James Wagner, Alexandru Agache, Aage Haugland

    Gächinger Kantorei Stuttgart, Prager Philharmonischer Chor, SWR Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart, Helmuth Rilling.

    After an imposed slumber of over 100 years, the score to the "Messa per Rossini" received its premiere performance in 1988 in Stuttgart under Helmuth Rilling. hänssler CLASSIC released the recording in 1989 in cooperation with the SWR broadcasting company and earned outstanding critical acclaim.

    The hand-written score of the requiem mass in remembrance of Gioacchino Rossini, a work of almost two hours' duration featuring five soloists, choir and a large orchestra, was completed in 1869, written by thirteen composers. At the suggestion of its initiator Giuseppe Verdi, the mass was to be performed at least once, in Bologna. However, the undertaking failed for organizational, financial, ideological and political reasons.

    hänssler CLASSIC aims to demonstrate the importance of this work for the world of music by re-releasing the recording. It is the sole recording of this work in the world and is of particular interest since it provides a collection of music by various Italian composers, many of whom have sadly and all too wrongly been neglected.

    Gounod: Messe Solennelle de Sainte-Cécile.

    I like this very much. Although it's sort of simple, I find myself often listening to it in a cerebral mode, studying the aesthetic effect. I guess it's just because I'm usually in the mood for the oomph-oomph type of sacred music (Haydn/Beethoven/Cherubini etc), and this is something different, something I'm not used to.
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.
