Notes & Reviews:

After almost a decade, Hyperion is delighted to welcome back the world-famous St. Paul's Cathedral Choir under its new director of music Andrew Carwood. Joined by the St. Paul's Mozart Orchestra and a quartet of renowned soloists, Carwood leads sparkling performances of a selection of Mozart's sacred music. Although they were commissioned to be sung at church services in Salzburg, all these compositions are suffused with Mozart's typically unerring sense of dramatic pacing and a sensuous, operatic treatment of solo lines, as well as crisp and energetic choral writing.

MusicWeb International, July 2012
The performances are thoroughly versed in eighteenth century period practice, although it appears that modern instruments are used. The soloists make a well-balanced team in the Missa Solemnis...Those wanting either a performance using period instruments or a more romantic view of Mozart will look elsewhere, but these genial performances are perfectly in scale and will be welcome to many.

International Record Review, June 2012
This is a subtly devised and well-executed record.
