5.0 out of 5 stars Moving in the extreme!, 3 Nov 2012
This review is from: Parry: Orchestral/ Choral Works (Amanda Roocroft/ BBC National Orchestra of Wales/ Neeme Järvi) (Chandos: CHAN 10740) (Audio CD)
I tend to agree with much of what has been eloquently said above, but to add to the plaudits for this outstanding disc I must admit something. I am a lover of British music. I'm a lover of Parry. However, no matter how much a fan the last few bars of the Te Deum brought a lump to my throat, a tingle down my spine and a tear to my eye... and I don't mind admitting it! The moment the rising sopranos sing forth is one of those moments you wish would last for ever. I have had this disc for a day and have played it at least a dozen times. The other pieces are quite ecstatic and running for 0ver 75 minutes this is a generous helping of patriotism. Hopefully Chandos has realised that it should return to producing discs like this as it once did!

I don't work for Chandos, but if you love British music I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
