    I like it, but I think I want to learn more about Saint Sebastian. So I should take time to read the booklet that came with it.

    I found this work to have some similarities to my Joan of Arc trial recording, and we know of course that Joan is a saint who was also martyred. I have read a half-dozen books on Joan of Arc in the past couple months and am totally awestruck by her story. This is a great recording:
    "All of Italian opera can be heard in [Bellini's] "Ah! non creda [mirarti]."
    --Renata Scotto in "Scotto, More Than a DIva."

    I have never listened to this work either, but I'm glad you are enjoying the music and your research!

    I can thoroughly recommend Jeanne d'Arc, especially the recording by Seiji Ozawa, and Honegger's other "oratorio" Le Roi David. There are some good recordings of the latter by Maurice Abravanel, Ernest Ansermet and - more recently and in better sound - Michel Piquemal on Naxos.

    Thank you very much, Reichstag. My "To Listen List" is extremely long, but your recommendations have been added.

    Here is a fine sacred work that I have heard and keeps tugging me to listen to more von Bingen but for I haven't found the time yet being on too many other tangents at the moment.
    "All of Italian opera can be heard in [Bellini's] "Ah! non creda [mirarti]."
    --Renata Scotto in "Scotto, More Than a DIva."

    That was the first recording of the Verdi Requiem I bought, and it remains a favourite. Great soloists indeed.

    Bach Mass in B minor

    Karajan 1952

    Amazing how relatively 'modern' this sounds

    I often use Bach as the base for EDM works so well! Keep up the sacred music posts all love to see your choice.

    Another Saturday morning, heavy rain coming soon they say... noted the Honegger posted by Fritz and I have to hear that. Le Roi David made a good impression recently from the Munch Edition... now hearing something on the calmer side, less soul-wrenching than the composer's motets...

    Was listening to this earlier in the week.



    The Missa Praeter rerum seriem by De Rore is particularly splendid and well it's The Tallis Scholars so it's going to sound superb.
