5.0 out of 5 stars a voice teacher and early music fan 3 Feb 2007
By George Peabody - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A LOT OF BRASSES IN THESE MASSES!!!

Every piece that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)wrote bears the mark of the unique genius that caused Haydn to say to Leopold:"I delcare to you upon my honor that I consider your son the greatest composer I have ever heard."

Mozart's sixteen completed Mass settings all date from before 1781, the year in which he quit his native Salzburg to try his luck as a freelance composer in Vienna. While it is true that little sacred music dates from the time of Mozart's greatest maturity, the best work of his teens and early twenties show him deploying his easy skills in counterpoint and fluid vocal melody to produce music of elegance and charm,which, while not greatly radical, nevertheless married his strengths successfully to the accepted Austrian church idiom of the day.

Since the city of Salzburg had a long tradition of church music, generally with a brass-heavy orchestral accompaniment, Mozart retained this sound in his Masses, with their trumpets and trombones, and in the case of the 'Coronation' Mass,horns as well.

Mozart's earliest Mass, the so-called 'Waisenhaus-Messe', was not in fact composed for Salzburg but for Vienna intended for the dedication of a new orphanage church.

The 'Missa Trinitas' was composed five years later in Salzburg for the Feast of the Holy Trinity in June 1773. When Mozart wrote the C major 'Credo' Mass in November, 1776, it was in a lively and cheerful vein and quickly became very popular thruout the Salzburg region.
The two Masses K317 and K337, both again in C major,were written for the Easter celebrations of 1779 and 1790, respectively, and they show a rising maturity. The K317 'Coronation' Mass was performed in Vienna during the celebrations for the coronation of Emperor Leopold in 1790.

Whenever I see the name Stephen Cleobury and the Choir of KIng's College, I know I've got a quality production!..And this is no exception. The wonderful tuneful voices of the boy sopranos and male altos add so much to the sound of Mozart as well as any other early composer, The soloists, however, were brought in for this disc, and are not members of the choir. They are: Margaret Marshal(soprano)-Ann Murray (contralto)-Rogers Covey-Crump (tenor)-David Wilson-Johnson (bass)-Suzanne Mentzer (soprano)-Bernadette di Nissa (contralto)-Neil Mackie (tenor) and Stephen Roberts (bass). THERE WERE NO COUNTERTENORS SINGING SOLO PARTS.

Two very finely performed recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Young, bright voices effectively sing Mozart 24 Feb 2006
By E. Federico - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The King's College choir is composed of mostly young, brightly toned voices, which make for a crisp, clean sound on this recording. Therefore, it is excellent for use as either a rehearsal aid when performing any of these Masses, or purely for listening enjoyment. Good, clean recording.

4.0 out of 5 stars Explicitly Wonderful! 14 July 2004
By bonsai724 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have had the great privelage of writing several other Mozart related reviews, and I was absolutely belated with this wonderful CD. This CD will offer a very detailed and clear performance of the 5 masses presented. It has been said that Mozart wrote the bulk of his sacred music with "a deep, childlike and unquestioning faith." His masses are astounding in practically every aspect. This was an overall satisfying CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars This five mass set is worthwhile. Cleobury.. 13 April 2014
By Kirk List - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
is a animated conductor who often employs quick temp when necessary //imposing predecessors such as David Willcocks
and George Guest. Until recently some of these masses had been too little known, but major gaps been filled
via the Philips Mass edition in which Herbert Kegel shines. Cleobury here is excellent in the Credo Mass k257,rivalling Colin Davis with Helen Donath on Philips. The Mass k337 is also a winner,surrounded by the Vespers
k339, the Kyrie k341, the 34th symphony k338 and best of all -the Divertimento #17 k334. In k337 there is some
beautiful wind ensemble playing of sinfonia concertante caliber. Also too little known are the Masses k 139 and the
Trinity Mass k167. Two previous versions were impressive: Munchinger in k167 and Abbado/Janowitz in 139. Cleobury
is positive in two other way: excellent adult men and women as soloists and a dearth of HIP practice. Boys and men
are the choristers. Soloists are first rate: Margaret Marshall, Ann Murray, David Wilson Johnson and Rogers Covey IN A
Crump. The Coronation Mass is quite good but in a tough field including versions by Jochum, Kubelik and Horenstein

5.0 out of 5 stars Mozart's choral classics 5 Jan 2009
By Eric S. Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm not a big fan of Mozart (I'm more for heavier orchestral sounds that are found in works by Respighi, Stravinsky, Wagner, etc.), but this CD drew me in. The five masses (including "Credo" and "Coronation Mass") are very lightweight and delicate when compared to the composer's "Requiem," and Beethoven's "Missa Solemnis". They're very fluid and beautiful to listen to. The Choir of King's College, Cambridge really fulfills the classic and ambient sound that these masses require; the diction and tone is perfect. Maestros Cleobury and Munchinger get the classical tempi right: they don't romanticize it like Karajan or slow it down like Gluilini. And of course, let's not forget the audio quality. It's excellent! Another outstanding achievement from London/Decca.

As I said before, Mozart isn't really a favorite of mine, though I'm starting to grow on his music. I still prefer Romantic/20th Century Music, but I'm still able to listen to the earlier pieces.
