    Beethoven:Mass in C major, Op. 86
    Meeresstille und glückliche Fahrt, Op. 112
    Elegiac Song

    Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Robert Shaw


    “A performance that jogs along happily without any discernible raison d'être. The somewhat monochromatic choral tone fails to excite, especially as it is recessed, though there is welcome warmth in the orchestral sound.”

    Is Bocelli as bad in this as some people reckon? One review:

    He's just been chosen for commercial purposes, horrible.
    Even Gergiev doesn't understand the music completely.

    I have a Stabat Mater playlist also ... have you heard the Vivaldi, performed by La Tempesta and Jakub Burzynsky? It was a surprisingly beautiful performance--found it on Amazon in one of those $.99 Box of... recordings.

    My latest performance of the mass:

    http://www.amazon.com/Mass-B-Minor-B...dp/B00694VP1O/

    I think this would also be excellent piece to listen to during Lent to get in touch with what I believe is the true nature of the world and our existence....
