Notes & Reviews:

It is CORO's great pleasure to release the third CD in its series with the Handel and Haydn Society! Composed in 1779, the Mass in C major (Coronation Mass) is one of the most popular of Mozart's 17 extant settings of the Ordinary of the Mass. This disc also features Haydn's Symphony No. 85, which was a favorite of Marie Antoinette, leading it to become known as "La Reine."

BBC Music Magazine, December 2012
The singing of the Boston Handel and Haydn Society Chorus is spirited throughout, with Harry Christophers highlighting some of the work's most expressive moments, notably the agonised Crucifixus, with acute perception...Throughout the disc the sound picture is finely balanced and well put together.

The Arts Desk, 3rd November 2012
The main attraction is Harry Christophers' Coronation Mass, heard in a refreshingly unpompous, crystalline performance. That it sounds so zingy is largely down to the singing - a smallish choir moving with singular grace and four well-matched soloists...Teresa Wakim also gives us Mozart's Exultate, jubilate. She's lovely, avoiding the shrillness which can blight performances of this engaging work.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2012
Christophers draws out plenty of detail, and ensemble and intonation slip only occasionally given that this is a live performance; speeds are brisk.
