Words fail me! 6 stars wouldnt be enough!
on 8 February 2007
I can hardly believe the haunting beauty of this cd. It is simply the best £12.99 I have spent for many years. Track 5 - "Intercession in Late October" is six and a half minutes of musical heaven ... and the rest of the cd is just as good. I was fortunate enough to hear Polyphony under Stephen Layton on Classic FM early last year doing "Water Night" from the Eric Whiteacre "Cloudburst" cd which I bought straight away. That cd is amazing ... but for Polyphony to be involved in something even more stunning on Morten Lauridsen's brilliant interpretations here leaves me speechless. Polyphony and Stephen Layton must be one of the greatest choirs ever heard. Uplifting and mesmerising, you cant help but get lost in the sweeping beauty of this superb cd. This is really something very special not to be missed.
