Master Berliozian Sir Colin Davis delivers a supremely engaging Te Deum, recorded with great success and awesome power. This one should take precedence over his earlier studio effort, which is usually saddled with Davis' admired but nevertheless interminable Berlioz Requiem. Profil see fit to include wonderful photographs, cartoons and portraits with information about the performance context and also about Berlioz's visit to the city. They do not include the sung text which is unfortunate.
