    Beautiful singing, lovely music, wonderful.
    We don't see babes smashed against the stones or rivers of blood (too much for an oratorio) but many times through out the score the music will awake your soul.

    Cover design is Queen Esther by Edwin Longsden Long (1878) at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.

    I've been listening to this recently



    It's new to me, I'm finding it quite bizarre hearing Bach sung in a language other than German!

    One of the great things about following specific singers is that they can lead you to discover all sorts of lovely pieces.

    Well, surprise surprise, another Winterreise. I heard it on Spotify and got it because I simply love Andras Schiff - his delicacy, almost pearl like in the lighter passages. I think he is my favourite pianist. Schreier does a nice job too.

    Have you heard this? This also is KTK at her very best, and a stunning recording of Strauss' Vier Letzte Lieder:
