Beethoven's Mass in C is a beautiful and outgoing work, stirring and contemplative, offering hope and consolation. Bob Chilcott has composed a modern and accessible counterpart, taking texts from the traditional Requiem and from the Book of Common Prayer. In this reflective and uplifting work for soloists, chorus and orchestra, Chilcott uses the same scoring as did Beethoven, and should beguile and inspire listeners.
