5.0 out of 5 stars A rediscovered gem, 8 May 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Henry Walford Davies - Everyman (Audio CD)
How has this music remained unrecorded? This is a gem of a recording and in its way as moving a work as Elgar's Gerontius. The music is tuneful, well-constructed and very well-recorded. All 4 soloists sing well and their voices blend well together. The choral singing is equally impressive. The story of Everyman, from a morality play which I remember reading in A level English at school, is at once serious and uplifting and the excellent setting to music by Walford-Davies serves only to bring out the meaning of the play. The role of Everyman, brought to life by the excellent Paul Putnins, is at the heart of a lovely and ultimately very optimistic piece of music. I hope that this will lead to more of the music of Walford-Davies being recorded. Thanks to Duttonlabs for rediscovering a lost classic!
