Louis Spohr: Mass op. 54 & Psalms op. 85

Description

Louis Spohr’s only mass is one of the most important works of post-classical church music. In this unaccompanied mass, Spohr combines in a harmonious way the contemporary interest in Baroque compositional techniques and his own search for an individual, modern compositional style. The Kammerchor Stuttgart under its conductor Frieder Bernius succeeds in bringing to life the numerous facets of the work in a particularly impressive way. As well as the mass, the recording also includes the Three Psalms op. 85. These two works by Spohr have been interleaved for the first time in a recording: the three Psalms have been inserted in the relevant places, representing the positions of the Introit, Gradual and Offertory, resulting in a truly impressive experience for listeners.

Reviews

Alles in allem enthält diese 2014 aufgenommene CD wirklich wundervolle Musik in exquisiter Darbietung.
Dietmar Hiller, Forum Kirchenmusik, April 2017

Hier erklingt Chormusik vom Besten in einer wohl nicht zu überbietenden Interpretation. ... ein besseres Plädoyer für diese Werke lässt sich nicht denken.
Johann van Veen, Toccata, März/April 2017

Mit welcher Bravour sich der Kammerchor Stuttgart und das hervorragende Solistenensemble dieser Aufgabe stellt, vermag zwar kaum noch zu überraschen, aber noch immer zu begeistern.
Christoph Heimbucher, Musik & Kirche, März/April 2017

He [Frieder Bernius] continues his superb work here. The sound is also excellent, allowing all of the choral parts to be clearly heard without ever sounding congested ...
David Reynolds, American Record Guide, 21.2.2017

Un disque ... recommandable qui bénéficie du geste alerte du chef allemand, toujours inspiré par cette période du début du romantisme.
Florent Coudeyrat, concertonet.com, 17.02.2017

Dans un tel répertoire, le Chœr de chambre de Stuttgart est quasiment insurpassable.
Yves Kerbiriou, ClicMag, 12/2016

Bernius does wonders with his choir with regard to blending, phrasing, articulation ... dynamic differentiation, a remarkable transparency ... and perfect intonation.
Johann van Veen, MusicWeb International, 02.12.2016

Wieder beweist der Chor, daß er zu den besten Chören überhaupt gehört, weil [...] so klar und rein gesungen wird, [...] daß es einfach ein Hörgenuß ist.
Astrid Belschner, kulturradio.de, 21.09.2016
