Haydn's Masses
« on: September 13, 2007, 12:56:21 PM »
On the listening thread Harry mentioned buying a Brilliant Classics reissue of the Haydn Masses by Weil.  I'm very much interested in this set, and I'm excited to hear of it's reissue... but I was unable to find it online through my superficial search.  Where can I buy that set?

Que told me, that it is only available in Holland. I could not find on all the sites I looked. Que gave me a link to the Dutch site, Kruidvat, and there I ordered it.

I did see enterprising individuals take advantage of that and selling it on ebay.

Hi,

Did Sir Neville Marriner ever record Haydn's last mass "Harmoniemesse" (Wind-band Mass)? Because, I've never found better recording of Haydn's Great last 6 Masses other than Marriner's. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Joseph

Ilove Marriner in Haydn's Masses, but never heard him in the Harmoniemesse. But Ferencsik and Bernstein are very good in this work.

I could not find a version with Marriner conducting, but there is a version with "his" orchestra, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields.    This is in the venerable Decca set, with George Guest conducting.     I have this version (and the other late Masses) and I am very happy with it.       I don't know how it compares to Gardiner, Harnoncourt, Bernstein and the others, but I have never been tempted to look for another version.

The original set was 5 cds.  This set is 4 cds.  I don't know whether material has been cut or whether they have just rearranged the material to fit on to fewer discs.

I just did a check between my own (Benelux-only) Brilliant set (above) and the listing of the Vivarte reissue on jpc. And you all are not going to be pleased.... :-\

Basically, all what is on the 5th disc in my set is missing:
Missa brevis Sancti Joannis de Deo, Hob. XXII:7 ("Little Organ Mass")
Mare Clausum, Hob. XXIVa:9 (fragment) (on CD 4)
Missa "Sunt bona mixta malis", Hob XXII:2
Offertorium "Non nobis, Domine", Hob. XXIIIa:1
Ave Regina, Hob XXIIIb:3
Responsoria de Venerabili, Hob. XXIIIc:4a-d
Responsorium ad absolutionem "Libera me", Hob XXIIb:1
Salve Regina, Hob. XXIIIb:1

That doesn't surprise me at all!  A quick review at Amazon US has shown that only 4 cds were released here in separate editions.  They also have the box titled as  The Six Late Masses rather than The Complete Masses.   ::)

After going through all of my cds, I find that I already have the cd pictured below which seems to have much of the same content as CD 5 of the original Brilliant Classics set, as well as the original pressings of three other CDs containing masses as well as Weil's recording of die Schopfung.  I guess this means that I may not be buying the reissue. :)

Well, I have the Benelux Brilliant set, thus not overly concerned (for once) bout being left out of it all!  :)

Along with the Hickox "Black Box" Complete Masses and the Gardiner "6 Great Masses" set, I can honestly say that my desires in this direction are completely fulfilled! I don't compare amongst them, I simply enjoy the multiple merits of each.  0:)

OK - Guys & Gals - I own a LOT of Haydn's instrumental music, but just the usual of his choral/vocal output - concerning the Masses, I have the 3-CD set shown below w/ Gardiner - should I consider another option and/or some additional purchases; as usual, appears that Hadyn wrote so much that one cannot attempt to own everything!

Actually, the Hickox DOES have everything, having 3 more disks than the Weil. And Collegium Musicum 90 is a fine band. This box is 5 star rated just about everywhere, and I was very satisfied with it (and the Gardiner) until I got the Weil, which as I say, didn't replace the Hickox for me, it just made a very fine option when I want a different take. :)

I just wanna pop in real quick to give the thumbs-up to Hickox's set of the Haydn masses.  You get decent period instrument performances of all the masses and lots of Haydn's other sacred music in one handy-dandy box set.
