FRANZ SCHUBERT (1797-1828): Mass No. 6 in E Flat, D. 950, Stabat Mater in G Minor, D. 175.
Catalogue Number: 03J047
Description: Scholars speculate that this was Schubert's personal requiem and it certainly stands out both from works of its type in that period and from Schubert's own previous œuvre of sacred music. Unusually prominent trombones contribute to a feeling of disquieting power although Schubert's lyricism is still present throughout along with two grand and imposing fugues which end both Gloria and Credo. Immortal Bach Ensemble, Leipzig Chamber Orchestra; Morten Schuldt-Jensen.
