Notes & Reviews:

As part of the Mendelssohn celebrations in 2009, Helmuth Rilling has once again come to champion forgotten masterworks. And there is no more capable advocate - Rilling's grasp of the Bachian idiom is essential to understanding Mendelssohn's own approach to crafting liturgical music. Once again, Maestro Rilling has assembled a showcase of some of Europe's finest young singers, accompanied by the Gachinger Kantorei Stuttgart and the Bach Collegium Stuttgart, for a listening experience that will lift the heart and enchant the ear.

"(Rilling) certainly has the measure of these magnificent Psalms, where the choir rides in front and the orchestra takes more of an accompanying role. His world-renowned choir sings with palpable love for the music, vanquishing any and all technical concerns as they do so. Mendelssohn's counterpoint rings out with real authority, especially the intense double-fugue that opens 115. There's excellent playing from his orchestra as well, especially the winds...All of the soloists are fine, especially soprano Sibylla Rubens in 42, who makes the spirit soar as it thirsts. No problems with the engineering, and there are German texts and English translations...If you hadn't noticed, great recordings are still being made." - American Record Guide

Gramophone Magazine
These are words of great confidence and, in places, joy, and Mendelssohn's sure-footed reaction finds highly sympathetic champions in these Stuttgart musicians. Given such perceptive and vital performances Mendelssohn's psalm-settings are revealed to be works of considerable distinction.

BBC Music Magazine
The choral sound is convincing, and sometimes thrilling. Good solo contributions, if on the dramatic side for this lyrical music.
