Catalogue Number: 11S025
Description: Spohr’s only mass (1821) is one of the most important works of post-classical church music. In this unaccompanied mass, for five soloists and two five-part choirs, Spohr combines in a harmonious way the contemporary interest in Baroque compositional techniques and his own search for an individual, modern compositional style. The eight-part, double chorus psalms come from 1832. Maria Bernius (soprano), Julia Diefenbach (mezzo), Carolina große Darrelmann (alto), Tobias Mäthger (tenor), Simon Tischler, Felix Rathgeber (basses), Kammerchor Stuttgart; Frieder Bernius.
