About

The Kammerchor Stuttgart, under the direction of Frieder Bernius, is one of the finest choirs worldwide. Their many prizewinning a cappella recordings have set a standard. Now Frieder Bernius presents Beethoven's Mass in C major (op.86).

With its tonal language of subjective avowal, the first of Beethovenís two masses opens up new worlds of expression for the liturgical texts of the Mass which are expressly modern and point towards the future. Not to be considered a preliminary work to the Missa solemnis, it is an entirely independent work which set standards for the further development of settings of the Mass in the 19th century.

The world premiere recording of Luigi Cherubini's Sciant gentes (1892) rounds out this CD.
