Fantastically good performance,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Britten: War Requiem (Audio CD)
I ordered this after watching the trailer on Youtube, which blew me away. The recording itself is wonderful and all the soloists are excellent. pace and timing are very good indeed and the choral singing is also wonderful - starts scarily quiet - fantastically controlled singing on the part of the choir, and then builds and builds till the Dies Irae almost frightens one out of ones skin. The final section, which I particularly love, is profoundly moving.
