Description: We offer this primarily for the virtuosic, ostinato-driven, sometimes moody and pensive, sometimes gorgeously lyrical 1997 mass by the brilliant and innovative young French composer Escaich. Dove's 2009 offering is also bright and bustling but based on the expressive minimalism of, say, John Adams. Anthony Gowing (organ), Choir of Sheffield Cathedral; Neil Taylor.
