Product Description

Arguably Britains greatest living choral composer, Sir John Taveners music is performed in churches and cathedrals throughout the land and at the most important state occasions. This glorious recording from the choir of St Georges Chapel, Windsor Castle, includes The Lamb, perhaps one of the best-known choral works of the late twentieth century.

this is perhaps one of the most curious approaches to the recording of scared music that i have yet heard. unlike the nearly perfect balance struck between close-mic clarity and ambient mics to capture the spatial characteristics of the location -- i'm thinking of ECM releases in particular, and their range from near-studio levels of control found on the recordings of many works by arvo pärt to the splendid sense of place captured on rolf lislevand's releases -- this recording offers essentially no delineation between the performers and the acoustic space, resulting in blurry and hazy reproduction that features a persistent hump (clot?) hovering around 400Hz. the effort would have been better served by recording the performers dry and then running the results through a convolution reverb.

This is my very favorite type of music. I was quite impressed by the Choirs performance. It seems to me that virtually all English choirs can do magnificent jobs.
