I would highly recommend this CD to experience another way to pray on the Rosary.
First off, I simply cannot imagine how any other tune could match the words of the Divine Mercy Chaplet better than what we hear here. Trish Short has done to the Chaplet what Schubert has done for the Ave Maria. I believe this will be the standard setting of these words for generations to come. Sublime beauty, while perfectly matching the meaning of the prayer. I am in awe at its sheer perfection.
The execution is powerful and emotional, while simultaneously being restrained enough to allow the listener to enter into the music without being overpowered by the performance.
The "passing of the baton" from singer to singer between the decades, as well as the subtle variations in the instrumentation, managed to eliminate any trace of monotony in what could so easily have been 50 repetitions of the same 2 lines over and over again. I never got that feeling. To the contrary, I didn't want it to end.
Purely a personal preference, but I felt the descant in the final decade was ever so slightly over the top - dangerously flirting with a sort of Andrew Lloyd Webber scoring. Just me, however, and I can't fault the performance for not matching my own taste at every point.
The final three repetitions of "Holy God..." etc. are the perfect ending to this setting, gently leading us off the lofty heights we've been soaring through in the previous 18 minutes or so.
All in all, I honestly think we have a masterpiece on our hands here. I keep this CD in my car, and it is the ideal accompaniment to rush hour traffic - a way to put that time to Good Use!
