Produktbeskrivelse

cd book

The 'Missa Salisburgensis à 53 voci' (in comparison, 'Spem in alium' was written by Thomas Tallis for «only» 40 voices) is perhaps the largest-scale piece of extant sacred Baroque music, an archetypical work of the Colossal Baroque. It is a polychoral composition which takes advantage of the multiple organs and various locations available for groups of singers and musicians to perform in Salzburg Cathedral, probably for the 1682 celebrations marking the 1100th anniversary of the founding of the Archbishopric of Salzburg. This stunning recording features Jordi Savall’s ensembles at their best and fully reveals the «splendour» of this masterpiece. A recording of cosmic proportions that Jordi Savall has decided to illustrate with a celestial image of the Helix Nebula. Nothing less.

*****

This is Biber in gargantuan mode … superbly recorded. Groups ranging from solo voices with a pair of recorders to the full ensemble complete with brass and drums are thrown across the huge spaces of the chapel with palpable excitement and thrilling effect. The reverberation lasts over five seconds, yet every detail in the small scale passages is crystal clear, and the sheer weight of the full forces is shattering. BBC

Savall marshals the music with a keen sensibility to momentum, balance and colour…[his] more organically natural acoustic makes for an easier overall listen [than the Koopman or McCreesh versions] while losing only a little in forthright splendour…[the Mass] makes its awesome point. Gramophone

The central work on the disc is the astonishing Missa Salisburgensis, but Savall surrounds this with a range of other works, choral and instrumental, that show this remarkable composer off to a dazzling degree. It's my greatest musical discovery of the year so far...It's very well sung but the effect when the voices, trumpets and drums all combine is breathtaking, and the engineers deserve credit for capturing it so faithfully...Overall, tremendous.
