From the heart of Chicago, St. John Cantius presents the Coronation Mass.  This recording captures the Mozart spirit—solemnity and grandeur!  This exuberant, assertive and contemplative rendition of the Coronation Mass finds just the right tempos; full of energy but never rushed, taking time to relish special moments, like the tender Et incarnatus est. Be captivated by the glorious presentation of this regal repertoire. Recorded at the venerable St. John Cantius and re-released on De Montfort Music/Sony Classical in 2017.
