Not quite what it says on the tin
on 21 March 2013
Reissue of a variety of recordings of Russian choral music, spoiled for me by the intrusion of Paul Mealor's 'De Profundis', using the American winner of an internet search to find a bass solo singer who could sing that work's very low 'E' (hence the title, 'de profundis'). The chosen singer has none of the classical vocal qualities that blend with the other singers on that track. This work would have been better as part of a Paul Mealor CD and not slipped in here.
OK if you shuffle and omit this track, I'd say.
