Soli Deo Gloria’s DVD of Missa Solemnis shines a supreme light on this rarely performed sacred masterpiece. Beethoven wrote that “music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents,” and this DVD beautifully brings to life the composer’s spiritual intent “to awaken and permanently instill religious feelings, not only in the singers, but also in the listeners.” Part of the Soli Deo Gloria Collection.
