I'm shocked that Decca's five CD set is still available,
as so many of those box sets are deleted. Like the
Haydn masses apparently.

Fortunately, competition in some of these is fierce,
what with Margaret Price on RCA and Elly Ameling
in what looks to be a promising new SACD, whatever
that is. I know it costs more.

Most of these "concert arias" are so wonderful,
even some of the early ones, they could be sneaked
into "Figaro" or Don Giovanni" and fit right in.

Just try "Vado, ma dove" K. 583. I wish this
went on for about ten more minutes--have you
ever thought that while listening to Wagner?

Kiri Te Kanawa (Decca) and Price are both
good in slightly different ways (KTK more delicate, MP
more dramatic). But though my Ameling cassette is
long worn out, I think she does it best.

You Mozart fans: grab this Decca set before it
disappears. (And yes, it has complete texts
and translations).

In addition to the concert arias, there is the "Masonic Music".
I think there are some recordings of the "Masonic Funeral
Music", K. 477, but most of the rest continues to be
plagued by neglect.

Vox has a two-disc set, recommended here recently by
David Gable, featuring the complete Masonic music. For
admirers of "Zauberfloete", particularly those wonderful
choruses, this music is very similar, though most of it is
much earlier.

The well-known motet "Ave Verum Corpus", one of
WAM's best known works, is included, but some of the
other lesser-known works are on this level. And some
of the works on this set are really late, like the AVC.

And the works for wind instruments here are great,
including, for example, the Adagio for Two Clarinets
and Three Bassett Hounds, K. 411. (Note)

Alas, no texts in this otherwise outstanding set
dating from 1966 and a Masonic festival commemorating
the 175th anniversary of Mozart's death.



(Note) Horns.

My favorite soprano concert aria is "Ma che vi fece, o stelle...sperai
vicino il lido"(K. 368).

If anyone knows where it can be listened to in its entirety online, I
would greatly appreciate knowing. Thank you.
