This review is from: A Song of Farewell: Music of Mourning & Consolation (Audio CD)
Purchased on the strength of McCreesh's recent Grande Messe, even though the repertoire on this new disc would not normally attract me. As with the Berlioz, this is superbly well recorded. I find many a cappella recordings unlistenable - some producers seem to place the choir at the opposite end of the chapel to the microphones and even then add gallons of reverb. But this recording sounds natural. There is space, but it is still intimate, suiting the personal nature of the music. Very much wish that the Winged Lion label would release SACD.
