Notes & Reviews:

Mendelssohn devoted much of his energy and talent to music for liturgical use, and it forms a substantial proportion of his output. A collection of his sacred choral works is performed here by the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge in its second recording for Chandos, which follows the success of its recording of the complete choral works by Durufle.

International Record Review
The performances are robust yet sensitive... and the recorded sound is sumptuous. This is a triumph for Marlow and his Trinity College Choir, for Chandos, and, above all, for Mendelssohn's reputation as an inventive and deeply rewarding composer of sacred choral pieces.
