Excellent reviews of my orchestral mass Missa in honorem Beati Hemmingi Episcopi
"Such an experience was to hear Terhi Dostal’s (…) extensive, downright monumental work of church music, finely and competently interpreted. The piece in question had already had its premiere in the Turku Cathedral with Suomen laulu Choir and St. Michel Strings - and it was performed again in Johanneksenkirkko in Helsinki a couple of weeks ago. (...) All in all, the work is an impressive demonstration of the vividness of the genre's tradition now that all styles are allowed in music again, after being freed from the dictatorship of seriality. Such a work is guaranteed to find its audience. I predict that Dostal's Mass will be presented often again." - Prof. Eero Tarasti, Amfion
A really brave and special opening. Dostal knows this music. He also knows the essence of the Catholic Mass. Dostal's Mass is a tribute to old church music and breathes life of traditions. Dostal's mass is a choral work where religiosity is mixed with romantic feeling. The end result was a controlled, beautiful and melodically rich mass. Dostal took over the polyphonic technique of the renaissance in this Mass of Bishop Hemming." - Ilmo Pokkinen, Länsi-Savo
