5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant performance
This is a very difficult work...I have sung it myself..I WISH I had this cd all those years ago however! Willard White IS Elijah himself, wonderful powerful, dramtatic and passionate singing. The tenors voice is also stunning as are equally the soprano/alto solos. This recording is VERY clear for 1989. Every single track has been labeled with time duration on the back of...

Great Hickox recording...Willard White, a little flat in places. Great singing from Arthur Davis and rest of singers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant performance, 27 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Mendelssohn: Elijah (Audio CD)
This is a very difficult work...I have sung it myself..I WISH I had this cd all those years ago however! Willard White IS Elijah himself, wonderful powerful, dramtatic and passionate singing. The tenors voice is also stunning as are equally the soprano/alto solos. This recording is VERY clear for 1989. Every single track has been labeled with time duration on the back of the cd. The booklet notes and pictures of the soloists and the rehearsals add to the magic, as does the photo of mendelssohns letter to his friend, disscussing the work. The choir are very tight and how they get in sync with all the orchestra through the speed changes is beyond me and prob down to the amazing skills of the conductor/ director. I have really enjoyed listening to this heavy piece of work with such great melodies, following it along with the score (a must really to hear those details) . I couldn't find another better cd of this work so got this one..and glad of it too...

This review is from: Mendelssohn: Elijah (Audio CD)
Willard White's voice in this version of the Elijah is very good indeed. Good quality recording, as expected from Chandos. Very enjoyable, I find myself coming back to this 2-disc set regularly.

This review is from: Mendelssohn: Elijah (Audio CD)
The sung words are so clear, there was no need to follow the score. It was easier to follow the drama.

I strongly recommend this recording of Mendelssohn's Elijah particularly if you haven't already got this oratorio in your collection. The vocal and instrumental lines are all nicely balanced and the drama is brought out very keenly. Listen to it if you get a chance, you won't be disappionted!
