MENDELSSOHN

Sacred Choral Works

Chamber Choir of Europe / Nicol Matt

Extensive series of box sets presenting the greatest, most famous and best-loved choral masterworks of western music.

Encompassing more than 700 years of musical history, from the Flemish masters Josquin and Ockeghem, through the mastery of Bach, the grace of Mozart, the romantics Brahms and Mendelssohn to 20th century masters Britten and Rutter.

Beautifully repackaged with fresh and inspirational artwork, appealing to a wide audience. Several sets have been recompiled, so as to offer even more value for money.

A highly attractive series, with great commercial potential for the Christmas Season! Brahms’s choral music ranges from the severe magnificence of the Fest- und Gedenk-sprüche to the ravishing opulence of the Op. 17 Songs for female voices, horns and harp.

Mendelssohn’s reputation has suffered over the past century from the madness of the Nazis who banned his music, destroyed statues of him, to the rantings of Richard Wagner in his horrible little tract ‘Judaism in Music’. The fact that he was probably one of the most gifted child prodigies of all time has also tended to obscure the fact that his later works are just as remarkable as those of his youth.

A Jew who converted to Protestantism, Mendelssohn was a prolific composer of sacred music and he made important studies of J.S Bach – in fact he was instrumental in the resurgence of interest in Bach’s great oratorios in the 1820s and 30s. Bach’s influence upon Mendelssohn’s own sacred music is unmistakable, however composers such as Handel, Haydn and Mozart all played a part in creating his choral style.

Schumann commented on one of the works on this collection (Prayer – Verlieh uns Frieden), ‘ This little piece deserves to be world famous, and will indeed be so in the future. Madonnas by Raphael and Murillo cannot remain hidden for long’

This 8 CD collection contains many more such gems, and offers the listener an opportunity to discover more about the composer of Fingals Cave, the Violin Concerto, and the Italian Symphony. Mendelssohn’s genius is apparent in every one of the works to be found in this set.
