 Soloists Teresa Wakim, Paula Murrihy, Thomas Cooley and Sumner Thompson joined Harry Christophers and the Handel and Haydn Society to record Mozart’s Coronation Mass live at Boston’s Symphony Hall earlier this year.

 
Mozart’s Mass in C major is one of his most popular and enduring works. Known as the ’Coronation Mass’ – a nickname it acquired following a performance conducted by Antonio Salieri in 1791 in Prague at the coronation of Leopold II as King of Bohemia – it includes the beautifully tender Agnus Dei. Alongside the Mass on this CD are Mozart’s soprano solo Exsultate, jubilate, beautifully performed by Teresa Wakim, and Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 85, which was a favourite of Marie Antoinette, leading to the name ’La Reine’, by which it is still known today.

 "... I cannot fault Harry Christopher’s performances with Boston’s long established Handel and Haydn Society, nor indeed the soloists, notably Teresa Wakim’s performance of Exsultate ..."
