Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vespro Della Beata Vergine: The Monteverdi Choir [DVD]  (DVD)
I recorded this from the BBC, when it was first broadcast. It remains the DVD recorded performance by which others ( there aren't any!) would be judged. The video was thrown out long ago, but I have the sound recording. In introducing a friend to it, I thought she'd love to see the splendour of the original.
The video quality is at best adequate, but the sound is good and the performance glorious. JEG conducts with his usual serious dramatic flair, and his orchestra, chorus and soloists are wonderful. It is fun to see a VERY young Bryn Terfel in the lineup. But, it is expensive for an old and discontinued DVD.
