This review is from: Mozart: Solemn Vespers K339 / Coronation Mass in C K317 / Ave verum corpus K618 (Audio CD)
This CD enhances the already considerable reputation of the Schola Cantorum of Tewkesbury Abbey (this is their second release on the Delphian label in recent months) and surely places this choir among the finest of its genre (boys and men) in the country.
The recording is extraordinary for a start in that a boy treble sings the solos that are more usually sung on recordings by a soprano. Laurence Kilsby brings both an exceptional voice and outstanding musicality to all the solos, the Agnus Dei and Laudate Dominum being simply quite stunning. Is this the finest treble voice of this, or indeed many another, generation?
The choir, orchestra and quartet of all-male soloists under Benjamin Nicholas's direction combine to make this an absolutely superb, must-have recording.
