The recording eliminates that annoying hiss you often get from choirs, so much so that I wondered how they actually managed it (the choir that is as they all seem to have a tendency to lisp and hiss in the flesh) but that aside its a Glorious performance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good recording. Educationally very poor
Very good recording. Not Puccini's best, then he was only about 20 and written for an examination. Very disappointed with the production. It was all about Pappano. There was no information on Puccini. There was no information about the history of Messa di Gloria. No information about the background to Crisantemi. It was all about Pappano.

Lively joyous tempos singing and playing of the highest order....
The preludio is worth having and the Crisantemi has long been a favorite of mine and here is as good as anywhere.
No quibbles at all other than it could make our local choirs sound a little below par!

Just as I expected. It's a recording of Puccini's Messa di Gloria!
I bought it to enjoy and practise with.
Great.

I am learning this piece of music for a concert that the choir I am a member of will be singing. This CD shows the music in full while I have been hearing only a piano accompaniment. The singing and orchestration were very good and I enjoyed listening to it.
