4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy addition, 29 May 2012
By 
This review is from: Delius: Mass of Life; Idyll (Audio CD)
This is a very likeable and well recorded performance of the Mass of Life - excellent singing from the large choir and really beautiful playing from the orchestra - Alan Opie is quite outstanding amongst the soloists in his mammouth role in the work and is well supported by the other soloists, in particular Andrew Kennedy in the tenor role - the recording is full and spacious and captures the essence of the music very successfully - the balance is particularly good and at the price this is a real bargain. The notes by Lyndon Jenkins are very informative and add some interesting thoughts on this work. The perfomance is taken at a good pace by David Hill who keeps everything moving which will keep your attention - even if you are not a devoted Delian you will have your eyes opened to this wonderful composer's work by this new recording and hopefully you may want to investigate his music further (there is a lot more to Delius than the 1st Cuckoo). The Idyll performance is less successful than the Mass and does not match the Meredith Davis recording on EMI made many years ago - so one star removed - but superlatives for the Mass - buy and enjoy !
