Giulio Prandi & Coro Ghislieri - Rossini: Petite messe solennelle - BBC Music Magazine
Alongside their impressive dynamic range, Coro Ghislieri bring Rossini’s fugal passages to life. Some moments are revelatory; the ‘Gloria – Qui Tollis’ opens like a Lied, with its guileless accompaniment. ‘O salutaris’ is an extended song, exquisitely sung by Sandrine Piau. The harmonically adventurous ‘Prélude religieux pendant l’offertoire’ is otherworldly and mesmerising on the Érard.
