Notes & Reviews:

Released to coincide with Boston Baroque's 40th Anniversary Season, Haydn: Lord Nelson Mass is the anticipated follow up to Haydn: The Creation that launched the orchestra's partnership with Linn in 2012. Creation tenor soloist, Keith Jameson and bass-baritone soloist, Kevin Deas return for this recording, having won acclaim for their previous performances. They are joined by Mary Wilson soprano and Abigail Fischer mezzo-soprano. The Mass is partnered on this recording by Symphony No. 102, the most powerful, brilliant and interesting of Haydn's London symphonies, giving center stage to the ensemble's talented musicians.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2013
This new account opens with impact, even if the florid upper strings occasionally have to struggle against the implacable tirades of chorus, trumpets and drums. And the quartet of soloists led by agile soprano Mary Williams proves a well integrated team.

Sunday Times, 17th November 2013
This pairing makes eminent sense...The orchestra, in both the Mass and the symphony, play with a justified delight in this life-affirming music.

The Observer, 17th November 2013
A unique setting, freshly captured here by the skilled American period-instrument forces of Boston Baroque under Martin Pearlman. The acoustic is resonant, the playing in the symphony is deft and lively.

New York Times, 1st January 2014
[Boston Baroque] performs the stormy opening movement with rhythmic verve and intensity...A fine quartet of soloists...jostle for the spotlight with the orchestra, which shines in the rambunctious Symphony No. 102.
