Mendelssohn - Sacred Choral Works
Recorded 14-17 January 2000. Released April 2006.
“The performances are robust yet sensitive, a world away from that slightly wishy-washy quality which so many choirs seem to find in Mendelssohn’s small-scale sacred pieces, and the recorded sound is sumptuous. This is a triumph for Marlow and his Trinity College choir…” – International Record Review
This recording presents the neglected charms of Mendelssohn’s smaller-scale sacred choral music. Often dramatically conceived, these charming works demonstrate the composer’s enthusiastic fusion of traditional and contemporary musical styles.
