Mozart: Coronation Mass

Mozart: Coronation Mass



Handel and Haydn Society

Mozart's Mass in C major is one of his most popular and enduring works. Known as the 'Coronation Mass' – a nickname it acquired following a performance conducted by Antonio Salieri in 1791 in Prague at the coronation of Leopold II as King of Bohemia – it includes the beautifully tender Agnus Dei. Alongside the Mass on this CD are Mozart's soprano solo Exsultate, jubilate, beautifully performed by Teresa Wakim, and Joseph Haydn's Symphony No. 85, which was a favourite of Marie Antoinette, leading to the name 'La Reine', by which it is still known today.

Teresa Wakim: soprano
Paula Murrihy: mezzo-soprano
Thomas Cooley: tenor
Sumner Thompson: baritone
