    I feel like I have just come from a vast, dark and cold space. I may return here one day in the future but for now, respectfully this one is placed at the back of the tea cabinet.

    Well I think Requiems are SUPPOSED to have a rather sobering effect....the Grim Reaper, and all that, y'know.

    That's all well and good, but I prefer my requiems livened with some dirty jokes and a slip on a banana peel every now and then.

    Continuing my seasonal Messiah collection palyback, the newer Dunedin Consort using very small group has the advantage of SACD format sound and very good performance, the 1742 Dublin version has more soprano parts

    The landmark Hogwood Messiah defined the way we would perform modern baroque religious works with clear no vibratto vocals (Emma Kirkby etc) and AAM using original instruments perfromance practice

    Two more great Messiahs both featuring use of counter tenors for more variety in vocal tones, the deluxe Christie shown comes in sweet digibook format worth a few dollars more, also now available for reduced price "gold" series release.

    Please check out the recent Layton Messiah (pix 1) it is a great one many don't know about.......

    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.
