|Elisabeth von Magnus, Concentus Musicus Wien, Arnold Schoenberg Chor|
Haydn - Missa in tempore belli ~ Salve Regina / Röschmann, von Magnus, Lippert, Widmer; Harnoncourt
Harnoncourt understands the baroque principle `sublime`

(5 out of 5 stars)
"And he fully exploits it. Haydn is the example of what a baroque musician should/could be, and from the thundering tympani beginning to the last `give us peace` I stand completely in awe of the demanding way in which God`s grace and peace is invoked here. Haydn does not ASK, he demands, claims it. Beautifully performed. Once again, long musical lines, extreme contrats, and the beauty of sound for once not the most important thing, but rather a confrontation with the listener. Harnoncourt at his best!"
