These three magnificent choral works from the Viennese classical period are performed
by top soloists, one of London’s finest choirs, Goldsmiths Choral Union, and the period
instrumentalists of Musicians of London. Haydn’s brilliant Te Deum was first performed
in 1800 in celebration of a visit to Austria by Lord Nelson. Mozart’s Vespers, written in

Mass in C, dating from 1807, is one of the most passionate of classical settings,
powerfully pushing the musical boundaries towards Romanticism.
