Catalogue Number: 09M059
Reference: NI 5852
Description: The first and last of Wellesz five masses: the 1934 setting is austere and troubled, with an anguished Kyrie and an equally disturbed Agnus Dei surrounding movements which offer more stillness and calm while the late brevis from 1963, concentrated and gnomic, has more radiance and joy. Texts included. Christ Church Cathedral Choir; Stephen Darlington.
