Glagolitic Mass

The recording of Janáčeks Glagolitic Mass by Chandos Records was nominated for a Grammy Music Award in 2017 in the category of “Best Choral Performance”.

The Glagolitic Mass is considered Janácek’s finest non-operatic work. It was premiered a year after the Sinfonietta to critical acclaim. Set within a frame of purely orchestral movements, this impressive piece makes full use of the orchestra and chorus, with virtuosic solo parts for tenor and soprano, as well as organ.
