    Default New recording of Missa Votiva

    Has anyone heard the concert recording of the Missa Votiva by the Crescendo Chorus and Crescendo Period Instrument Orchestra directed by Christine Gevert?

    That makes 3 recordings of this one Zelenka Mass in the one year!

    Sounds like a very reasonable performance!

    I received the CD a couple of days ago. It is a live recording, and the absence of a proper booklet or "sleeve note" made me suspect that the actual performance might not be too good.

    To my great surprise, this turns out to be a very respectable reading and a very nice recording. (I haven't heard it through loudspeakers yet, only through open headphones - which was a holographic experience). The "Christe eleison" gave me tingles down my spine. The "Quoniam tu solus sanctus" is taken at speed. This is a very rewarding double CD issue, and it even has a surprise at the start. If you are a collector, consider it seriously!
