Format: Audio CD
These performances by tried and tested artistes are utterly dependable and present this attractive, open-hearted music, less well known than it deserves to be, in its best light. The sound is clear and well-balanced, all the distinguished soloists are good and Sawallisch's direction is as assured as you would expect. When you add to that the very low price of the two CDs, it is a real bargain and much to be recommended.

Schubert's later works tend to be greater, more profound and ambitious, than his adolescent stuff, so this twofer with the mature masses and one or two smaller items is the ideal purchase. Sawallisch conducts a wonderful team including DFD, Lucia Popp and Peter Schreier. For more detailed liner notes, you'll need to buy the complete sacred music box. I would have been grateful for more information, including the Latin/English words, and discs that weren't pink. But no matter.

These masses are the great religious compositions of the romantic era in music. They communicate a Beethovenian quest for faith in an era of doubt, a love of nature and of human society at its most brotherly.

If your experience of Schubert is his vast output of chamber music and songs, then listen to these masses. They are magnificent and equal the choral works of the other great composers of the time.

By DAVID BRYSON TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 Feb. 2011
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is such a distinguished and interesting set, and so attractively priced, that the rating has to be 5 stars despite some misgivings that I have about the first track of all and some later parts of the Mass in A flat. To get that out of the way, the solo voices are recorded disconcertingly close-to, socking it to us in a way that would have suited Verdi's Kyrie better than this one. The result does the singers, the soprano in particular, no favours by endowing them with a shrill and edgy tone. The problem is still there in the later ensembles, although I did not feel it so acutely, and it has vanished from the other masses and the two smaller works. Could this effect have been from deliberate choice? I hope not, but one never knows. It could also be my own feeling about it that is out step with general opinion, as well as the sense of discomfort that I have with the enunciation of Brigitte Fassbaender so near my ear and sounding as if she has a Kartoffel in her mouth.

Otherwise the singing is admirable. You would expect that from such a distinguished lineup of soloists, and it is wonderful to hear Lucia Popp in anything. The choir are excellent as well, and so, to complete this distribution of bouquets, are the orchestra under the marvellous direction of Sawallisch, instinct with lyricism, grace, beauty of sound and strength of line. The words are not provided, but that can't be much of a problem with such familiar texts, unless in the final Offertorium. This is another late effort of Schubert's, adjacent in Deutsch's catalogue to the Tantum Ergo on the previous track and perhaps intended for the same service.
