Many will be familiar with Gardiner's Missa Solemnis but this reading of the Mass in C is equally as engrossing and comes with the added joy of Charlotte Margiono singing the concert aria 'Ah! Perfido' and the Monteverdi Choir singing 'Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage.'

With a fine quartet of soloists as well as Gardiner's reputable forces this CD is a gem and can be highly recommended. To have 3 of Beethoven's lesser known works on 1 disc is fantastic.

A fabulous disc containing the wonderfully dramatic and beautifully lyricial concert aria Ah! Perfido, the brief cantata Meeresstille und glückliche Fahrt (a setting of Goethe's poems that also inspired Mendelssohn's overture) and the wonderful but surprisingly neglected Mass in C - on first play I was utterly taken aback by the splendid Benedictus - surely some of Beethoven's most inspired music.

John Eliot Gardiner and his forces play all the works with utter conviction. Wholeheartedly recommended.

I am learning this piece of music for a concert that the choir I am a member of will be singing. This CD shows the music in full while I have been hearing only a piano accompaniment, which helps a lot.
