Description

The greatest man of the human kind. Jesus’ music is the music of his life from his birth to his death and resurrection. A CD offered in a wonderful valuable packaging shows an unique journey through Jesus’ life.

Jesus Christ is a fundamental figure for all those who profess to be Christians, and, even if the religious aspect is left aside, he is also a special figure in the history of humanity. His life was marked by exceptional events, so unique as to render the fact that he was a man almost more extraordinary than his divine essence. Throughout the ages following the accounts of the Gospels both classical and popular music have underlined all the main aspects of the life of Jesus:

The happiness and gratitude to God of the joyful moment of Christmas – The Birth.

His growing up, the period in which Jesus is closest to other men  – Opus and Miracles

The most sorrowful moment in the life of Christ - Passion and Death

Being lost in amazement and joy – Resurrection and Ascension

The music by Handel, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and Giordani expresses each episode perfectly with excerpts of some of the most famous works ever written - you can listen to Handel’s Messiah, Bach’s Magnificat, Johannes Passion or Mass in b-minor, Mozart’s Great Mass, Beethoven’s Christ am Ölberge...

The recordings and interpretations are first class and performed by well-known artists such as I Solisti Veneti, Ambrosian Singers, Coro della Radio Svizzera, Sonatori Della Gioiosa marca, Claudio Scimone, Peter Maag, Diego Fasolis, Patricia Schumann, Lynda Russell and others.

A beautiful present for Easter time and a release that will match all expectations for the Jubilee year 2000.

Orpheus (13.10.2004)


about Handel: "Highly interesting cast ... The choir and instrumentalists give their very best"

about Mozart: "There is an operatic quality to this Mass and Lynda Russell is affecting in the Et Incarnatus est, which is an aria as demanding and important as any in the operas"
