Mendelssohn’s Psalm Cantatas are small scale works for vocal soloists, choir and orchestra, based on well known psalms, expressing the general emotional content of the psalm in dramatic and romantic musical language. The writing is firmly rooted in the German choral tradition, no wonder for a composer who revived Bach’s Matthäus Passion in his time.

Two of the most famous ones – “Eks teie tea” and “Otsekui hirv” – are included on this release and offer a stunning introduction to his music.

…Paul Hillier is arguably the finest living conductor of spiritual choral music, a conductor with a complete mastery of the technique of singing and a consummate understanding of the transcendence of music. The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir is probably the best Baltic choir, a chorus with the sonorous depths of the best Russian choirs, the supple strength of the best Scandinavian choirs, plus the soulful longing of the best choruses in the world. And, of course, Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil is beyond all argument the greatest, the deepest, the most transcendent choral work ever composed by a Russian and one of the highest musical embodiments of humanity's spirituality. Together, Hillier and the Estonians turn in a performance of the All-Night Vigil of supreme musicality and sublime spirituality, a performance to convert the unconverted and bring the apostate back to belief. Harmonia Mundi captures the performance in sound that can only be described as stupendous.
