THAT is the FUNNIEST thing.
I just listened to that on an old cassette recording! I\'ve looked and looked and looked, but I just CAN\'T find it! the ending is simply incredible! outstanding! amazing! Brilliant!! hmm I\'m running out of positive words
Well anyway, where did you find your cd? My tape is really wearing out! (Oh and where did you hear about it? It\'s fairly unknown!)
I learned about the CD from a girlfreind I had 10 years ago. her mother was a royal opera solo singer in Denmark and she know a lot about great classical pieces. This work was a christmas tradition in their home and I adopted it right away.
First a bought a vinyl record with this on side A and Francis Poelenc: \"Stabat Mater\", which is just as beautyfull - you must get this CD too.
You probably have to look a bit to get these CD\'s as they are a bit \"rare\".
If you don\'t know Poelenc - you will be surprised. Stabat Mater is a oratorium - almost opera. I have a version with Boston S.O. - Seiji Ozawa and with Kathleen Battle on vocal. (Deutche Grammaphon)
It is amazing - listen to this vocal and the Brass sound is so bright and crisp...
