Only seven posts in the Vincenzo Bellini Thread!?! Someone please explain why there are so few recordings of Bellini's Masses: Only three recordings available on Presto or AmazonUSA. I've listened to three different masses and I think they are all beautiful. I'll post the best performance of any that I have found on YouTube. I think the music is gorgeous, Mass in A Minor:

Margherita Rinaldi, soprano
Dora Carral, mezzosoprano
Ernesto Palacio, tenor
Agostino Ferrin, bass

Orchestra Sinfonica e Coro di Roma della RAIGianni Lazzari, choirmaster Fernando Previtali, conductor(PAL 4:3 |
live, Chiesa di S.Ignazio, Roma | 26 September 1975)audio remaster: Emilio Pessina, 2015
Because more people are interested in his operas, and while you may like his masses, there just isn't enough interest in them for someone to deem it financially worth it to commit to a recording and distribution of them.
