Performance standards vary from the highly accomplished to the barely acceptable, but let’s praise wholeheartedly the scholarship, dedication, and sheer effort (amateur and professional) that brought about this world premiere recording of all 12 published Masses by Cortellini. Glorious, mostly double-choir music, sung with inimitably bright Italophone resonance and played with an utter commitment that shines through sublime passages and murky blemishes alike with an almost equal luminosity – surely it’s time this fascinating repertoire of solemn festivity was performed in the UK? For now, respect to all Italian colleagues concerned.
