In 2011 John Eliot Gardiner and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique toured the United States, returning to the repertoire of Beethoven for the first time since their acclaimed symphony recordings of the early ‘90s. Their tour culminated in the CD release of his 5th and 7th symphonies. This recording of Missa Solemnis - recorded live at the Barbican during a sell out tour of Europe and the United States - continues their in-depth exploration of Beethoven’s repertoire.

Soloists, choir, orchestra, and conductor were praised for this incandescent reading of Beethoven’s masterpiece – a very personal statement of the composer’s faith, rarely heard in concert halls.

The album is packaged in a digipack and contains a 36-page booklet with original liner notes by BBC presenter and music journalist Stephen Johnson, translated in German and French.
