4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff, 16 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elgar: The Dream of Gerontius (MP3 Download)
Elgar-Gerontius-HeddleNash : Although sound-quality is well below modern standards, it's good for its day, and the ear quickly adjusts. Nash has an old-fashioned 'clipped' enunciation (with just a little Welsh seasoning), which modern listeners may find odd - but you can hear every word, clearly & distinctly. The conducting & orchestral playing is rapt - from the very first note, there is an intensity of concentration. The music moves like a tide - slow but relentless, with a constant onward pressure. Be warned : this isn't background music, it needs your full attention (preferably in a dimly-lit room with no distractions) - Gerontius is an experience, not an amusement. And it is a wonderful experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Recording!, 7 Jan 2013

This review is from: Elgar: The Dream of Gerontius (MP3 Download)
I new very little of this piece and only bought it because of the price. I like Elgar so hoped to enjoy this. It is a lovely recording with good sound quality and I love the tenor's voice. Each time I listen to it I enjoy it more, as I grow more familiar with it. At this very low price it's a snip!
