Janáček Glagolitic Mass

Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass is an exultant affirmation of the power of love and friendship. "In the tenor solo I hear a high priest", Janáček explained, "in the soprano solo a girlish angel and in the chorus our people". Each of the five main choral sections is preceded by a thrilling instrumental fanfare, culminating in a lustrous solo organ fantasia before the work’s uplifting final section.
