BACH: Mass in b – Lydia Teuscher & Ida Falk Winland (sopranos)/ Tim Mead (countertenor)/ Samuel Boden (tenor)/ Neal Davies (bass)/Arcangelo/ Jonathan Cohen – Hyperion (2 CDs)
A wonderful performance, easily one of the best on the market.
VIVALDI: Gloria in D Major, RV 589; The Four Seasons, RV 269; 315; 294; 297 – Mimi Coertse/Ina Dressel/Sonja Draxler/ Julian Olevsky, violin/Vienna Opera Orchestra/Hermann Scherchen – Tahra
The old magician Scherchen renders two Vivaldi staples in luxuriant–even eccentric–colors that never cease to engage us.
“Corridors of Light – Music of William Ferris” = WILLIAM FERRIS : Gloria for Mixed Chorus, Solo Quartet & Orchestra; Ed e Subito – Solo Cantata; Bristol Hills, a Reflection for String Orchestra; Corridors of Light – Wm. Ferris Chorale etc. – Cedille
Beautiful tribute to a late, great choral master who deserves to be better known.
