Customer Review

on 13 May 2013
I was 47 before I heard The Glagolitic Mass - at the Proms.Shame on me. It is an absolute knock out if you prefer a bit of grit in your classical music diet. Coupled here with the well known Sinfonietta. In the last 25 years or so I have heard as many performances of the Glagolitic as I have been able and there are one or two better than this on record, though the very best are those which began life in live (broadcast/recorded) performance.
This Naxos disc is astonishingly good value and like the works is gripping. A bit like the composer himself. His method is to get hold of you by the throat within a few seconds of the start and not relax his grip until the last chord.
Don't wait as long as I did before experiencing this work.There is no need to be fluent in Old Church Slavonic in which the work is sung.. You'll get the message without understanding a word !
