Notes & Reviews:

"Richard Hickox and Collegium 90 continue their excellent Hummel series with two more choral works far too long neglected. The D minor Mass of 1805 was the second of five that Hummel wrote for Prince Esterházy, carrying on from Haydn's late masterpieces... The 'Salve regina' of 1809, the year Haydn died, may have been written for a memorial event to Hummel's great predecessor, but it is anything but elegiac in its operatic style with elaborate coloratura for the soprano soloist, here glowingly sung by Susan Gritton. Richard Hickox again proves an ideal interpreter, drawing superb playing and singing." -Gramophone
