Conductors Owen Burdick and Jane Glover give full measure to the special character of each work, relishing every rhythmic twist, melodic turn, and point of clever illustrative detail. This is exemplary Haydn-that it happens to be church music only serves to remind us that here is a composer who could not only make sacred music cheerful, but cheerful music sacred -ClassicsToday. com, David Vernier, March 1, 2011.

Jane Glover pushes the 'Creation Mass' along at a faster tempo which, to my ears at least, makes this old favourite come alive once more. Curiously, the 'Missa Brevis' under Burdick was recorded in May 2001 and 'The Creation' under Glover in September 2008.

Owen Burdick (Missa Brevis); Jane Glover (Creation Mass); rec. 23-24 May 2001 (Missa Brevis), 8-9 September 2008 (Creation Mass), Trinity Church, New York. The Creation Mass shows Haydn as a complete master of choral writing (the title comes from the use of a theme from his famous oratorio in the Gloria at the Qui tollis peccata mundi ). In this work as in the other late masses, individual themes appear in multiple movements, lending both structural reinforcement and dramatic emphasis. At the same time, the orchestra is an integral part of the whole rather than merely accompanying the vocal/choral parts. The Trinity Choir is quite expert rhythmically and in terms of pronunciation, but they are sometimes defeated by the rather cavernous sound of Trinity Church. As always, the Rebel Baroque orchestra, based in New York, brings clean lines and incisive style to their performance.
These are polished and thoroughly professional readings of the scores. Taken individually, the masses are less impactful than recordings of the same works by Richard Hickox, John Eliot Gardiner, Simon Preston, Trevor Pinnock, and especially George Guest and David Willcocks, but the collection offers excellent value and good quality overall.
