Reviews

'Singing of an exceptionally high quality' (Gramophone)

'One of the most enriching listening experiences I have had in some time. This ethereal music is truly inspirational and serves to renew one's faith' (American Record Guide)

'This is one of the most wonderful choral discs I have ever heard. A must for anyone who values really wonderful music fantastically well performed' (Organists' Review)

'This delectable recital of choral gems … from the marvellous Corydon Singers' (CDReview)
Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe makes great use of the contrasts between unison, antiphonal and solo textures. Mendelssohn demands an unusually wide dynamic range here, and employs several pronounced changes of tempo to facilitate textual clarity.

from notes by Julian Haylock © 2006

Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe fait grand usage des contrastes entre les textures à l’unisson, antiphonées et solo. Mendelssohn y recourt à un éventail dynamique inhabituellement large et utilise plusieurs changements de tempo prononcés pour aider à la clarté textuelle.

Français: Hypérion

Ehre sei Gott in der Höhe bedient sich großzügig der Kontraste zwischen Unisono, Antiphonie und Solopassagen. Mendelssohn fordert hier ein ungewöhnlich breites dynamisches Spektrum und gibt an verschiedenen Stellen ausdrücklich Tempowechsel vor, um die Abschnitte klarer voneinander zu unterscheiden.
