If this were a wine I would rate it in the mid eighties. It gets stronger the further one is into the album. There are several melodies in the second half that I would call haunting.
It is entirely a lyrical orchestral album; you won't hear bombast, gun attacks, and I for one am glad the composer has spared us the weedly deedly "authentic" sounds of music and primitive instruments from the historical period. There is a reason such music is hardly played, and why modern instruments have triumphed.
So, this is a good album for drinking some good red wine, relaxing, contemplating, maybe with a romantic companion. It is not on my top 20 list, but nonetheless is worth a listen. My romantic companion, my wife, interestingly gives it about the same "wine rating" score -- 85 or 86.
track a thumbs up. I found myself so drawn to the music on this CD that I decided to purchase the
CD and am happy I did. Every track is as nice as the last. The mood of the music on this CD is
perfect for the time period this music has been composed for. If you like music that can easily be
categorized as classical without being harsh like alot of modern classical music can be, I recommend
this CD. You won't be disappointed.
