    Mozart • Requiem in D minor.jpg

    One of my very first forays into the realm of Classical Music back in '90. Still a favorite.

    If you liked this recording you should check out the Andrew Parrott or Mary Berry recordings - I think they are both better.

    Handel • Saul.jpg

    I'm about 1/3 of the way through the version of Saul that Biwa posted a few weeks ago; it's good. I'll add this one to my ever-expanding list of informal recommendations.

    Going on another pass through Bach's cantatas. Spotify has a catalogue of Gardiner recordings for the cantatas across multiple volumes. I think I am through the first 8 volumes now and I'll see where it takes me. Have heard some new selections that I really like across several cantatas.

    So am I, except that this is my first pass, and I'm not going through them as quickly as you are. As I have written previously, I bought the Ton Koopman box set, so I am ripping and listening, ripping and listening, ...

    Doing this in Classical Music is so much more difficult and time consuming than ripping Rock CDs. I keep running into lovely little landmines like titles in German with no umlauts where there should be umlauts. Most of the work, however, is simply editing (that is to say removing almost all of) the small paragraphs serious collectors seem to want to place in each tag.

    Valentin Silvestrov: Sacred Songs
    Kiev Chamber Choir, Mykola Hobdych

    Silvestrov's choral pieces sounded really weird to me at first, especially with this choir performing — as if they were slowed and pitched down in an uneven/shifting way like when your cassette player is running out of batteries. But now I'm hooked, this is beautiful stuff. The most depressing music I can think of, almost comically depressing at times, but my wires are crossed so I find it most uplifting.

    I was disappointed that ECM did not include sung texts in the booklet. They're mostly psalms and Russian Orthodox liturgical texts, so I can probably piece them together myself, but it'd be nice to have them in the booklet.

    I really like this group. That Palestrina/Victoria album is very nice. I just got “ Lamentationes” the other day. Now I wish I had purchased their new album “And the Sun darkened: Music for Passiontide” as well.

    Yes, that one looks interesting and I've been eyeing the Lamentationes album you posted. Presto has an offer on BIS at the moment...

    There's something about the contrasting character of the voices that works very well, and they're beautifully recorded.
