Don't let yourself be distracted and concentrate while listening to this CD. James Bowman's voice is so enthrilling that he will take you to the heights of his notes, making you wish to sing along and then leaving you breathless. There is so much intensity of feeling in his interpretation that Stabat Mater and Nisi Dominus in his rendering should be in the Top 10 sacred music performances of all time! The instrumental background is magical, making this a CD worth 10 stars!!

I can't remember when I bought the Lp recording of this. It must have been during the 1970s, which was something of a "Golden Age" for Early Music. I played this recording to death and when it came out on CD in the 1980s, I played that recording over and over again.

Bowman's interpretation of Vivaldi's great motets, "Stabat Mater" and "Nisi Dominus", have set the standard, in my opinion, for all other recordings. I think many recent recordings probably equal Bowman's, but none are actually better (Michael Chance, Graham Pushee and Robin Blaze have made admirable recordings of the Stabat Mater).

This was one of the first recordings made by the Academy of Ancient Music under the direction of Christopher Hogwood and I was fortunate enough to see these works presented in concert in my city (Adelaide, South Australia) at the time. I met James Bowman, a giant of a man! and a great gentleman - he was very kind to me and my younger sister (we were kids at the time).

Bowman sings this music with great pathos, conviction, great strength (his voice filled the Adelaide Town Hall) and great style. The sound of the Academy of Ancient Music was more "hard edged" than many modern Baroque ensembles and I must say that I prefer this sound. Needless to say, this approach was adopted in the 1960s and 1970s by period instrument groups as something of a conscious or, perhaps, unconscious break with the patently anachronistic, 19th century, operatic and sentimental performances of Baroque sacred music which were frequently heard at the time. This recording was one of the finest H.I.P. recordings from the entire '70s decade.

So, even though this recording was made in the 1970s, it is still worth owning, and it is not just a curio.

Here we have James Bowman singing his legendary performance of Vivaldi's Stabat Mater and Nisi Dominus. His voice is clear and he sings each piece without difficulty. His voice is very strong in all the pieces, and he remains true to the notation Vivaldi had written. I know because I have the sheet music. I nice piece to add to the collection, with a couple of Concerto interludes perfromed under the direction od Christpher Hogwood.
