Editorial Reviews

This collection of popular choral classics starts with some of the glories of the Baroque era by some of its greatest composers like Vivaldi, Handel and Johann Sebastian Bach, beginning with the uplifting opening of Vivaldi s famous Gloria. Other Baroque masterpieces heard throughout the set include the stirring Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah and Purcell's very moving: Thou knowest, Lord played during the funeral service of the late Princess Diana. Another deeply affecting work is the Lacrimosa from Mozart s Requiem, heard in the soundtrack of the film Amadeus at the time of Mozart s death. Composers from the Romantic era include Schubert, Mendelssohn, Berlioz, Brahms, Parry and Verdi, and there is a strong representation of later composers such as Poulenc, Rachmaninov, Fauré Duruflé and Bernstein. Also included are some more modern works that have attained great popularity in recent times such as Barber s Agnus Dei (a choral version of his famous Adagio for Strings), The Lamb by John Tavener and the Agnus Dei from The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace by Karl Jenkins.

I've enjoyed listening to this numerous times. It puts my vague prayers into clear focus which I often have difficulty with on my own.
