5.0 out of 5 stars Consistent Gardiner, 30 May 2011
By 
Robert Brook (Buckinghamshire, UK) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Haydn: Heiligmesse / Paukenmesse (Audio CD)
Another fine exhibition of choral music from Sir John Eliot Gardiner and his troops. Great singing and orchestral playing of two of 'Papa' Haydn's well known masses with a gem of a bonus track of Insanae et vanae curae, which is a thrilling anthem and not as well known or recoded as it deseves to be.

Absolutely no hesitations is recommending this disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haydn comfortably reaches Mozart's heights, 18 Feb 2008
By 
Aquinas "summa" (celestial heights, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Haydn: Heiligmesse / Paukenmesse (Audio CD)
Both masses are ectstatic pieces of music with unrivalled orchesration and glorious music for the human voice. If you need to be lifted out of yourself, then this is the music for you! I was fortuntate to see Gardiner in Barbcican doing the Nelson Mass and it is great to have mementos of his great interpretative work. Of the six masses, the Nelson remains my favourite with the Harmoniemesse comming a close second.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paukenmesse, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Haydn: Heiligmesse / Paukenmesse (Audio CD)
This recording of Paukenmesse is not quite as dramatic as I was expecting.

It's lovely nonetheless and I'm glad to have it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, despite incorrect pitch, 2 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Haydn: Heiligmesse / Paukenmesse (Audio CD)
This is a good recording, great to listen to and very good value. However I bought it to help me rehearse for a choir performance, which I do by playing my part on the piano along with the CD, only to discover that it is all slightly flat! Probably only an exceptional musician would notice this just by listening and it doesn't spoil the listening experience. But it does mean you can't play along with it (unless you can tune your instrument accordingly).

The sleeve doesn't mention that the CD includes Insanae et vanae curae as the final track, which is a really lovely piece in the same style.
