Notes & Reviews:
Next to Stabat Mater, the Petite Messe solennelle is Rossini's second extensive sacred composition and without a doubt a highlight of his late works. On this recording with Tonu Kaljuste and the Kirchheimer Vokal-Consort, one can hear the original version of the mass, in which the orchestra comprises a piano and a harmonium.
American Record Guide, November/December 2013
By the end of the 1820s Rossini had written about 40 operas and by many accounts was the most famous composer in the world. The Kirchheimer Consort consists of eight singers, who share the solos and then join together for the choruses. They tend to sound better in ensembles.
