The Missa solemnis stands among Beethoven’s superlative achievements, at once one of his most magnificent and most deeply personal creations. Composed in Beethoven’s final years, the Missa reflects the composer’s deep and complex spirituality at the end of his remarkable artistic journey. The nonpareil quartet of soloists includes Christine Brewer, recently named one of the 20 Greatest Sopranos of All Time by BBC Music Magazine.
