Today, Schubert's Mass No.6 in E Flat is increasingly acknowledged as an individual masterpiece; powerful and disquieting, more monumental than the fifth, but likewise seeking to reconcile liturgical grandeur with Schubert's own subjective romantic feeling, whilst still influenced by Haydn, Beethoven and Bach.

‘... the powerful new Hickox recording of this late Schubert masterpiece, clean as a whistle, superbly recorded, and with an excellent note by the scholar Brian Newbould, is now the one to have.' International Record Review

‘Turn to Hickox and you'll hear how this heavenly music should sound, with the three soloists singing with pure tone and wondering tenderness. Hickox scores, too, with his extra choral firepower at climaxes, and the wonderfully pungent sonorities of Collegium Musicum 90, whether in the dry, fearful rattle of period timpani in the Credo, the lovely 'woody' oboe and clarinet in the Et incarnates est of the steely, scything trumpets in the Agnus Dei.' Gramophone

‘Its originality is remarkable, and it is good to welcome a revelatory performance and recording, in which every detail of Schubert's often complex structures come through with clear, natural balance; the important timpani part is unusually well realised.Both choir and orchestra shine, relishing the drama that is so often lacking in Schubert's stage works and, under Hickox's perceptive and enthusiastic direction, also appreciating to the full the many reflective passages.' Early Music Review

‘Period-instrument colour, warm-toned choral singing and Hickox's imaginative, heartfelt vision help define this performance of Schubert's late masterpiece as a benchmark recording.' Classic FM Magazine


Schubert's final mass and most ambitious setting was composed during the summer of 1828, only months before his death. It was premiered posthumously, on October 4, 1829, under the direction of his brother, Ferdinand. Much more than his previous efforts in the genre, it is a choral mass, relegating the vocal soloists to three brief episodes to allow for large chorus passages, and provides an extremely active role for the orchestra. Today, the Mass in E Flat is increasingly acknowledged as an individual masterpiece; powerful and disquieting, more monumental than the fifth, but likewise seeking to reconcile liturgical grandeur with Schubert's own subjective romantic feeling, whilst still influenced by Haydn, Beethoven and Bach. Its concern for splendour is most obvious in the huge set-piece fugues at the end of the Gloria and Credo but all the time liturgical tradition is coloured by an individual and sometimes unsettling chromaticism, possibly evoking the personal pain he was suffering, not only physically but also the anguish of questioning his faith. The result is some of the most violent anguish encountered in a setting of the text.
 
Richard Hickox has long wanted to record this powerful work. The recording follows the successful concert at the 2007 BBC Proms. The same stellar cast is brought together, including Susan Gritton, James Gilchrist and Mark Padmore, accompanied by Collegium Musicum 90. The Guardian commented on the Proms performance: ‘it was graciously sung and conducted...' The Daily Telegraph wrote: ‘Wednesday night brought Schubert's wonderful and rarely-performed late E flat Mass, performed by some fine soloists and the ‘early music' orchestra and choir Collegium Musicum 90, conducted by Richard Hickox. It's close to being Schubert's last piece, and has an amazing harmonic daring mingled with a minatory severity - a very potent mix'.

The recording is dedicated to the memory of Francesca McManus who, before her death, was for many years the manager of CM90.
