Format: Audio CD
In all sincerity and honesty I can't think of many other box sets of music that will give you as much enjoyment and satisfaction over the course of time as this fabulous Decca treasure trove of Joseph Haydn's 13 settings of the Mass.I've lived with and loved the original individual releases for over a decade now,and it's wonderful to see them all cosily garnered together in such a convenient form at last.
It's astonishing to consider just what a glittering galaxy of talent was brought to bear upon this landmark recording project,that stretched out from 1965 to 1979.For our money we get three tremendous choirs (King's College,Christ Church and St.John's) and more famous soloists than you could shake a stick at.And could the music be in safer hands than those of the ASMF;AAM or the LSO ? Also,never forget the crucial contribution of those legendary recording engineers,Kenneth Wilkinson and John Dunkerley,who's technical genius and wizardy enabled them to capture these fabulous performances in such gloriously,warm,full-bodied and spacious sound.
The earliest Masses were in fact the last to be recorded in the late 1970s.Simon Preston skillfully marshals the AAM,Christ Church Cathedral Choir and his star vocalists in order to produce crisp and vibrant performances of gems like the "Missa Sancti Nicolai" and the "Missa Sancta Caeciliae".I should say though,that excellent though these interpretations are,they do face strong competition from that recent Chandos survey of the Masses under Richard Hickox,and it's well worth your time in lending your ears to both points of view.
George Guest and his brilliant Choir of St.John's College,Cambridge were entrusted with the next Masses in chronological order,i.e.

I have very little to add to the excellent review here by "quia-nihil-sum", other then to endorse it wholeheartedly. This is an excellent historical set of all of Haydn's magnificent mass settings in very fine performances by some of the greatest choirs, soloists, orchestras and conductors of their time. In my view, Haydn's mass settings are at least the equal of Mozart's and I derive endless pleasure from them.

Not every movement in such a big set may be to your taste (personally, I'm not that keen on April Cantelo's – to me - excessively operatic vibrato, for example) but there is a wealth of magnificent music here. As I write it is available as a download for under twenty-five quid, which represents the most amazing bargain. I recommend this very warmly indeed.
