Notes & Reviews:

The dismal state of church music in the first half of the nineteenth century encouraged Liszt to go back to plainsong and the music of Palestrina for inspiration. Composed in 1865, the Missa Choralis embodies these twin elements. The influence of plainsong pervades the thematic material, albeit refocused through Liszt's boldly original and expressively chromatic harmonic language.

'A disc in a million. Matthew Best gives the music's every moment of excitement its full impact - stunning. Makes essential listening' (Gramophone)

'On excellent form, the Corydon Singers give an impassioned account, rich in tone and dynamic contrast and, above all, exemplary in the matters of ensemble and balance. Majestic sound' (Classic FM Magazine)

'I find the Corydon Singers' performance of Via Crucis utterly compelling and truly memorable... an essential Passiontide recording' (Organists' Review)

'Strongly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
