More Info:

After the album dedicated to chamber music [TC931901] by the composer Luciano Simoni - passed away in 2010 - in this CD Tactus is presenting his Missa Solemnis, a large composition dedicated in 1987 to the Pope Giovanni Paolo ii (premiere in Bologna and later in Poland in Wroclaw), immediately enjoying considerable success. Simoni's Mass certainly reflects the inner needs of a believing composer who adheres with passion and faith to the depth of the sacred texts, as his own words are explaining to us: «What is represented in my Missa is the descent of God towards man, who is then raised towards Him [...], in my work there is the anxiety and fear of contemporary mankind, there is the constant, unceasing human tension towards salvation, where only Christian hope can be a safe haven.».
