About

Released to coincide with Boston Baroque’s 40th Anniversary Season, ‘Haydn: Lord Nelson Mass’ is the anticipated follow up to ‘Haydn: The Creation’ which launched the orchestra’s partnership with Linn in 2012.

The ensemble’s concerts of the Lord Nelson Mass have received rave reviews, with the Boston Globe praising the ensemble’s ‘magnificent performance.’

The distinctive and memorable Lord Nelson Mass, arguably Haydn's greatest single composition, stirs powerful emotions, ranging from solemnity and torment to joyous celebration. Boston Baroque’s performance follows the leaner, original orchestration of Haydn's manuscript including the original vocal lines (made simpler in a later edition).

Creation soloists Keith Jameson (tenor) and Kevin Deas (bass-baritone) return for this recording, having won acclaim for their previous performances. They are joined by Mary Wilson (soprano) and Abigail Fischer (mezzo-soprano).

The Mass is partnered on this recording by Symphony No.102 - the most powerful, brilliant and interesting of Haydn's London symphonies, giving centre stage to the ensemble’s talented musicians.

Founded in 1973 by Martin Pearlman, Boston Baroque is already familiar to an international audience with its critically acclaimed catalogue of recordings. The three-time Grammy-nominated ensemble is widely regarded as ‘one of the world’s premier period instruments bands’ (Fanfare).

Boston Baroque's recordings - of which Fanfare magazine wrote ‘each one is an incomparable gem’ - are heard by millions on classical radio stations in North America and Europe.

Boston Baroque plays magnificently...with great fervor...and great delicacy.’ - Opera News

A magnificent performance, played with astonishing precision and led with authority by Martin Pearlman. The four soloists sang beautifully as individuals and were perfectly matched as a quartet. The trumpets and timpani outdid themselves, as did the chorus.’ - Boston Globe
