This is indeed a great performance. In "Belshazzar's Feast", Robert Shaw leads the orchestra to wonderful orchestra outbursts. The choir is simply superb. Bernstein's "Chichester Psalm" has another bonus - the soloist, male alto Derek Lee Ragin. His vocal control is very good, and the outcome a great experience. Bernstein's "Missa Brevis" is something to learn about - more mystical and great demand from the singers.
