Product Description

Susan Gritton, soprano - Pamela Helen Stephen, mezzo-soprano - Mark Padmore, ténor - Stephen Varcoe, baryton - Collegium Musicum 90 - Richard Hickox, direction

Amazon.com

Richard Hickox's traversal of the great Haydn Masses, such as the Paukenmesse and the Harmoniemesse, has been widely admired, and for good reason: uniformly well-recorded, they feature an excellent period-instrument band and a well-disciplined 24-voice chorus that's equal to large-scale works such as the Nelson Mass. Hickox's ability to balance the devotional with the dramatic is exceptional; contrapuntal lines are brought out with transparency, and the solo singing is uniformly fine. He nicely captures the tensions running through the Mass: its final D major resolution comes as a burst of bright sunlight. The substantial fillers date from early in Haydn's career. Soprano Susan Griffin excels in the Ave Regina, and the melody-rich Missa gets an affecting performance. This is now the preferred CD version of the great Nelson Mass. --Dan Davis

By A Customer on August 15, 2000
Format: Audio CD
For many years now Trevor Pinnock's splendidly dramatic and incisive performance of the "Nelson" mass has been the "Flagship" of the fleet,but now comes a worthy challenger,which if not exactly overtaking it,at least gets close enough to fire a warning shot across his bows.
Perhaps on first listening to this CD you will miss the tense,nervous and almost dangerous energy so evidently communicated in that wonderful Archiv recording.Instead Richard Hickox gives us a reading which underlines the inate spirituality of the text,and if I say that the overwhelming impression you get at the end is one of serenity,you might have trouble believing me,considering that this is Haydn's most anxious and troubled setting of the mass.Don't get me wrong though;there is blood and thunder galore at the appropriate junctures,but out of the maelstrom Haydn's warm humanity and genuine ineffaceable good nature still shine through,and to draw this out of such a storm-tossed work is quite astonishing,and is an enormous tribute to all the superlative musicians involved.
The dilemma you are faced with is that you can't get along with just one or the other CD in your collection.You've GOT to have them both.So let me apologise in advance to those of you who are entirely new to this gorgeous music:because you simply have to proceed to Amazon's checkout with two items in you basket,and there is no other alternative available to you - sorry !
As to couplings on each respective disc - Pinnock ends his with a wonderfully boisterous "Te Deum", which is not to be missed,whilst Hickox treats us to two earlier works i.e. Haydn's earliest setting of the mass,and his lovely "Ave Regina" which came a few years later.
