3.0 out of 5 stars A few good pieces, but still somewhat dissapointing., 2 April 2005
This review is from: Karl Jenkins - Requiem (Audio CD)
There were a few good pieces in this one, but , speaking as a big Adiemus fan; I found it to be a dissapointing follow-up to Jenkins' superlative work in Adiemus. This music is a very different and more classical style than Adiemus, which is to be expected, but Jenkins' melodic and compositional talent does not shine through as much as in his adiemus work. There were still a number of great pieces that were enjoyable, particularly 'Introit', 'Dies Irae' and 'Agorawd'. The haiku's were the most dissapointing thing about this albumn, and I didn't much care for the singer's voice in these pieces, who's japanese singing technique seemed a tad contrived for my liking, and ended up being annoying. However, it was worth buying nonetheless, as there was some good music here. Just not Jenkins' best.
