05 February 2001Scotland on Sunday
Christmas music may seem a little unseasonal, but Johann Michael Haydn's Mass and Vespers for the Feast of Holy Innocents
(which takes place on December 28) represents a joyful celebration of choral writing that can be appreciated at any time of year. Unlike his older, more famously prolific brother, JM Haydn's forte was liturgical music and in this new Linn release The American Boychoir give a lively account and exude a youthful attack without sacrificing vocal clarity.
