Notes & Reviews:

Acclaimed orchestral and operatic conductor, Laurence Equilbey conducts the Accentus in this classic release from the naive catalogue. The Seven Last words is one of Haydn's most spiritual and magnificent compositions; a musical proclamation of Haydn's affirmation of his Catholic faith in God. Originally written as a purely orchestral work, Accentus and the period ensemble, Akademie fur alte musik Berlin perform the vocal version. The incredibly moving Stabat Mater is considered a choral masterpiece. Accentus was founded by Laurence Equilbey in 1991, and is now recognised as one of the leading ensembles in Europe.
