Catalogue Number: 06O031
Description: The early (1832) mass is one of Nicolai's first big opportunities and he supplied a beautiful setting, whose warm orchestral colors are aided by the subtraction of flutes and oboes. Of the other shorter pieces, the Psalm 13 setting is personal - Nicolai was quite ill when he wrote it and concerned about losing his position. German-English texts. Sarah Schnier (soprano), Alexandra Thomas (mezzo), Wolfgang Klose (tenor), Lucas Singer (bass), CONSONO Chamber Choir, Folkwang Chamber Orchestra Essen; Harald Jers.
