Haydn Masses

Haydn Masses

Hänssler Classic is pleased to welcome the talents of The Choir of Trinity Church, Wall Street and the REBEL Baroque Orchestra and Owen Burdick to our roster of artists.

Our new series of Haydn’s sacred choral music begins with the charming Missa brevis in F Major (featuring the angelic soprano voices of Julie Liston and Ann Hoyt – performing the solos originally composed by the young haydn for himself and his brother Michael). The featured work is the massive Missa Celensis – appearing here in the definitive text of the Henle Urtext Edition.

Dr. Burdick is a student of Maestro Helmuth Rilling and his pedigree is in full evidence in these insightful, vivid choral performances, accompanied by the distinguished artistry of some of New York’s finest period instrument performers.

This recording was made in historic Trinity Church on Wall Street, just 600 feet from the scene of the attack on the World Trade Center and includes a gripping, personal note from Owen Burdick recounting those tragic events.

The sacred music of Joseph Haydn has been often praised but seldom performed – these are the DEFINITIVE performances to satisfy both the casual listener and the serious collector.
