In his masterful Glagolitic Mass, Leoš Janáček set about creating a celebration of the God he glimpsed in the physical world around him. Inspiration struck in the misty Luhacovice woods. 'Its moist scent was the incense', wrote the composer, 'I felt a cathedral grow out of the giant expanse of woods ... Now I hear the voice of each arch-priest in the tenor solo, a maiden angel in the soprano – and in the choir I hear our people.' After a storm-tossed overture by Wagner and Beethoven's radiant Fourth Symphony, we hear all the blazing fanfares, raw outcries and hushed humility of Janácek's Mass inspired by the wonder of life.
