Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Venetian Coronation 1595 (Audio CD)
If there's one cd that will tempt you to spend a lot of money on audio and turn your home into St. Mark's, this will be it. I can't think of another that has this sense of occasion. The sequence of plainchant, choir, organ (actually three) and brass like you've never heard on modern valved instruments, adds up to much more than the sum of its parts, every sequence adding to the drama. The VIPs at that coronation would have remembered it for the rest of their lives. So will you. My girlfriend won't let me leave the country with it.
