1.0 out of 5 stars Stunning voice, 1 Dec. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Silent Noon (Audio CD)
Stunning voice but shame about the choice of music. Such a wealth of talent but the selection is disappointing. The format and delivery lack variety. A disappointing buy.

This compilation contains some lovely songs, with the composers featured ranging from Stanford and Parry to Warlock and Britten, it focuses on the early twentieth century - the great renaissance period of English music.

There is a good mixture of the familiar (Quilter, Warlock, Vaughan Williams) and the less-well-known (Frederick Keel, Dunhill and Michael Head, and Somervell's Shropshire Lad) .

There are some nice touches in Terfel's singing, and he is able to bring a song vividly to life.

I just do understand how it can be said that the selection is disappointing or that format and delivery lack variety.

What a bizarre review, at least you picked up on the quality of the singing. Bryn is at his best here before he goes a bit downhill with too much bluff and bluster in the last 5 years. I heard him live doing Finzi songs with orchestra and it was mediocre I'm afraid although he did at least warm up by the time he got to the encore (welsh songs-surprise!)
The selection is as good as any collection of twenty English song - if you don't like English song why did you buy it?

What a stupid comment and a very silly so-called review. What did you expect ? "Bryn sings The Spice Girls" or some such similar trash. This is a glorious recital of English songs by some of the greatest song composers and how can the selection be 'disappointing' when you have settings of such poets as Yeats, Houseman, Shakespeare and Masefield.
