Conducted by Andrew Manze.
The celebrated British conductor Andrew Manze conducts the Bachchor Salzburg and the Camerata Salzburg in this new realization of Mozart's Mass in C minor. The performance uses a new score reconstructed and edited by the renowned musicologist and Mozart expert Ulrich Leisinger. Comparing several editions of the Mass from Mozart's time found in and around Salzburg, Leisinger discovered many parallels between each score and other clues to help complete any missing parts. Featuring a stellar quartet of soloists including Carolyn Sampson, this live performance from the Grosser Saal of the Mozarteum Foundation in Salzburg also includes Leopold Mozart's rarity Litaniae Lauretanae.
