Mozart: Mass in C minor / CPE Bach: Heilig ist Gott - Dunedin Consort
dunedin-mozart-mass-c-minor

Following a highly anticipated televised performance at the 2023 BBC Proms, Dunedin Consort and conductor John Butt released Mozart’s ‘Great’ Mass in C minor and Carl Phillip Emmanuel Bach’s Heilig ist Gott on Linn.

Devised to celebrate his marriage to Constanze, but left unfinished at the composer’s death, Mozart’s Mass can clearly be traced back to the choral writing of Johann Sebastian Bach and his son, Carl Phillip Emmanuel. This musical genealogy is displayed here in a lavish double-chorus, double-orchestra feast where both works echo each other. No stranger to Mozart – the ensemble’s recording of the Requiem was a Gramophone Award Winner and Grammy- nominated – Dunedin Consort puts its stamp on these most spectacular contributions to church music.

The Guardian:

‘The baroque specialists thrill in a new edition of Mozart’s C minor Mass.’
