The Chamber Orchestra of Europe - Schubert: Mass in G Major/ Schumann: Requiem for Mignon
I purchased this recording of The Chamber Orchestra of Europe performing Schubert's Mass as a means of remembering one of the highlights of my musical career. As with most Deutsche Grammophon recordings, the quality of this album is superb. In addition to the Schubert piece, this disc also includes Schumann's Requiem for Mignon from Goethe's "Wilhelm Meister." Although I have no personal connection to this piece, it is almost as enjoyable as the Schubert. This disc is always a nice trip down memory lane for me, as the rating will reflect.
