    Definitely get to know it! I'd also highly recommend those by Verdi, Fauré, and Cherubini as well.

    I love the Tallis Scholars - kind of a 'go to' for pure and lovely singing.

    I can't imagine this being better sung. Wow.

    I completely forgot I had this and, inspired by Natalie, took it out of mothballs.

    Stunning piece of music.

    Now, I look forward to hearing what Mr. Kaufmann does with it.

    You might also like to consider what Mr Finley does with it. This is also beautifully sung, and the pianist is much better as a musician (rather than technically) than Der Jonas's accompanist; there is more contrast generally between each lied. I'll have to crack out Mr Padmore to compare.

    Late afternoons are a good time to review non-opera vocal recordings!

    I'm listing this here because it really was the 'Choral' Fantasy I was after - I hadn't heard it in years, and got inspired by listening to Fidelio.

    So I did and now I'm confused, each of these renditions has something to offer. I just borrowed Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's performance from the library to compare.



    Great selection of songs loosely linked to war, some pretty harrowing.

    This was my seasonal listening. It's good, but not quite up to the solemn delights of Matthew Passion.

    Same here. I just listened to it on Saturday. I particularly love the baroquey way that they pronounce 'reigneth' in the Hallelujah. Must have been some rehearsal sessions to achieve some of the effects. That amiable wizard Christie...
