5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent email review received by Robert Mansell from Canada, 29 May 2015
"I had a chance to check out your "Sacred Music of Robert Mansell" CD and was very impressed with your performance, repertoire and production – you have a great program of works - its refreshing to hear contemporary works that have a tonal and melodic basis, and yet are still imbued with a chromatic richness and an innovative harmonic language; the performance is excellent - very expressive and emotive - and the production quality is very good – very well done; the choir has a great ensemble sound, with a good balance with the organ and the overall performance is deeply poetic and expressive - really great to listen to." Nick Peros. Wow! Thanks Nick!

5.0 out of 5 stars First class read! (especially for gay men), 2 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I will be so sorry when I finish this trilogy!
I was extremely disappointed when I got to the end of the first book: I wanted it to go on and on - only then I discovered to my great delight that there were two more books to follow! Which I read equally avidly.
Very insightful writing about slavery and its ramifications. Made me think it all through in a way I had not at all done before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utmost mastery!, 30 Oct. 2013
I cannot praise this CD highly enough. Apart from the brilliant concept of Alberich's survival (which I must confess I had never thought about even though I am such a devout Wagnerian), the utterly brilliant performance by Evelyn Glennie and the marvelous orchestra is quite simply outstanding. And even the way that 'Rapture' seems naturally and effortlessly to continue after the (unfortunately, to me anyway, rather mystifying) ending of 'Gerette Alberich' is just wonderful. Listen again and again and again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highest praise, 19 Oct. 2013
I cannot endorse this splendid book enthusiasticallly enough. Most amusingly and wittily written. As a fervent Bach lover I agree with his inspired and intellectual comments. How happy I am to have this volume on my extensive bookshelves ... as equally I am to have Gardiners recordings in my battalion of CDs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Correct connection is important, 22 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Please note LawrenceC's review - it is very important. At first I thought the cable didn't work until I read his comment that it must be connected to the headphones (or volume/track controller) BEFORE it is connected to the iPad or (in my case) iPod. Then it works just fine.
BTW. Note that the cable is a bit 'heavy'(thick). This may or may not matter to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incomparable!, 21 Aug. 2011
No matter how many recordings of Tristan and Isolde you have in your collection, this has to be the top one. Outstanding singing and immaculate conducting - and this said by someone who usually finds Goodall slow and plodding. The recording quality is amazingly good considering its early digital heritage. I cannot understand why this has not been reissued - it is long overdue.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring!, 15 Dec. 2009
I agree with the other reviewer. All rather uninteresting stuff. And why re-arrange Wagner's fabulous music when the original is so good and so readily avialable in hundreds of other and better recordings.
