often heard in the concert repertoire is good. I like
it, but rather like a previous reviewer, I find that
something is missing from The Adagio. It does not tug
at the heart strings as much as the Leonard Bernstein
rendition or indeed that of the late Eugene Ormandy.
That said, Andre Previn does coax true emotion out of
the LSO and it is most enjoyable to listen to.
The other pieces are the Violin Concerto Opus14,
Essay No1 Opus 12 and the Cello Concerto Opus 22.
A good introduction to the work of this contemporary
of Bernstein and Copland, making Barber one of the
foremost composers of his era.
The finale on this album is a return to the Adagio,
this time in vocal form as for a Mass.
In the late 1960's Barber returned to his masterpiece
and created an arrangement of the Agnus Dei set for
a full choir.
The recording here is that of the choir of Winchester
Cathedral under David Hill, a beautiful version.
This CD is one of the less expensive EMI recordings on the
Classics For Pleasure label.
Almost 80 minutes of quality music.
Well worthy of a spin.

this is great, along with another tune this is for my funeral, glad it came quickly so I can listen to it nowPublished 23 months ago by carol noon
We purchased this music for a funeral and I was pleased with the sound of this release. Not so dirgy as some later recordings (now associated with 9/11.)Published on 28 Nov. 2013 by Elliemay
