    Oh, and I almost forgot Machaut. "Messe de Notre Dame" by Diabolus in Musica (a much better reading than the bored-sounding Ensemble Gilles Binchois, despite what the Amazon customer reviews say), and a disc of his ballads (which aren't "sacred music," technically) by Ensemble Musica Nova.

    Mayr: Requiem in G minor

    Siri Karoline Thornhill, Katharina Ruckgaber (sopranos), Theresa Holzhauser, Brigitte Thoma (altos), Markus Schäfer, Robert Sellier (tenors), Martin Berner, Ludwig Mittelhammer, Virgil Mischok (basses)

    Simon Mayr Chorus and Ensemble, Franz Hauk


    Gramophone Magazine

    February 2016


    “Almost entirely bereft of serious engagement with the drama of Last Things, [the Requiem] reveals Mayr burbling away, as was often his wont, amiably and at length. A more irrepressibly cheerful set of Requiem movements you would be hard-pressed to find…what is genuinely cheering about the set is the affection that Frank Hauk and his mainly Bavarian forces clearly have…the performance has style and panace, and the recording is first-rate.”

    Would you mind uploading the cover images; it really helps me to find the pieces more quickly. Thanks!

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

    Peter Schreier

    Bayerische Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester, Charles Munch



    “Munch's second recording of Berlioz's setting of the Requiem Mass resonates to a vision recognising that the devil is in the quiet detail, and that (paradoxically) intimacy triumphs.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2009 ****

    Sacred Music in 18th-Century Naples

    Manna:Lectio VIII Defunctorum

    Santangelo:Sinfonia in F major

    Sellitto:Stabat Mater

    Abchordis Ensemble

    The Italians of the 18th century and later were completely absorbed with opera and instrumental music. Despite this, the sacred music of this period was not less abundant than in previous centuries. As a tribute to such an extraordinary musical liveliness and creativity, this disc presents a project involving the research and revival of unpublished 18th century Neapoitan sacred music recorded here as a world premiere.
