5.0 out of 5 stars Great Brass and Choral Work December 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
'Festal Sacred Music of Bavaria, c1600' with works by composers Lassus, Hassler, and Erbach, performed by the Westminster Cathedral Choir and His Majesty's Sagbutts & Cornetts goes far to fill out my sense of the origins of music so popular in my hometown of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, the home of a nationally famous Bach Choir and the seat of the Moravian church in the United States.

This perfectly explains the Moravian (originally from German speaking regions of Moravia in the old Austro-Hungarian empire, a stone's throw from fellow south German principality of Bavaria)tradition of the Trombone choir on major Christian holidays (a Sagbutt is an early form of the trombone).

This, this record bridges the gap between the medieval and renaissance chant and polyphony and the classical masses of the great Italian and German composers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

As usual, Hyperion does a great job of capturing this music and the performers are about as good as it gets with old music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible June 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Before I say anything else I must say, BUY THIS DISC. I've been listening to it for two days and can't bring myself to put something else on. The only fault I've ever found with the Westminster Cathedral Choir is that, occasionally, boy choirs don't record well. Such is not the case with this recording. The engineer has finally come closer to communicating the artistry that is shown by these performers. The CD illuminates a fascinating and often overlooked period in the history of western music. You couldn't possibly ask for a better performance of some of the greatest music you'll ever hear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive but a little too understated October 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Save for the (fairly often recorded) Lassus Mass, all this disc's pieces are profoundly obscure, having seldom if ever turned up on other CDs. Without exception they are splendid, echoing the antiphonal effects pioneered by the Gabrielis in Venice, but with a decided declamatory character of their own.

The only slight drawback to this impressive collection is the mild but persistent tendency towards understatement which the performers display. All is beautifully polished, but it needn't and shouldn't sound so stiff-upper-lip - especially in the bland-sounding organ solos - as it often does. Konrad Ruhland's wonderful anthology (TE DEUM LAUDAMUS, on the Sony label) of very similar material has the requisite vocal and instrumental toughness which this collection lacks. So this is an attractive supplement to the Ruhland recording rather than a substitute for it.

Format:Audio CD
The Westminster Cathedral Choir and His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts, under the direction of James O'Donnell, give a magnificent rendition of festal sacred music by Orlandus Lassus, Hans Leo Hassler and Christian Erbach, as it may have been performed at Mass on the Feast Day of a Martyr-Bishop in Augsburg Cathedral, Bavaria, circa 1600. The Augsburg Cathedral Choir then consisted of men and boys; the Westminster Cathedral Choir now consists of men and boys.
