This version of 'Tehillim' by the Schonberg Ensemble is somewhat muddy and dark compared with the bright and crisp tones given to the piece by members of Steve Reich's own ensemble. I actually prefer the Reich Ensemble version, though both are good.
The bonus that you get with this version of Tehillim is the accompanying piece, 'Three Movements', a reworking of the pulsing themes from 'Desert Music'.
Personally, I'd be inclined to buy the other version of 'Tehillim', plus 'Desert Music', though I've got all three and listen to them all frequently.
This version of 'Tehillim' by members of Steve Reich's own ensemble is brighter and crisper in tone than the alternative recording available (Schonberg Ensemble), and I for one prefer it.
The one quibble I would have is that this cd is rather short (not much over 30 minutes).
