    That swelling is a regular aspect of her interpretative style. But this one sounded especially ethereal to me, primarily the first track.

    Shocked, recently, to discover (a) that Jean Françaix, whom I've always regarded as a composer of pleasant witty trifles, also composed a full-scale oratorio based on the book of Revelation, and (b) that it was his personal favorite among his works. How could I have been so totally ignorant of it? I've been doing penance by listening to both recordings.

    Lately it has been Bruckner's masses and Te Deum, in recordings conducted by Jochum, Haitink and Karajan.

    This seems to me exactly the sort of beautiful music that modern composers are supposed not to be able to create any more. Not mushy or soppy or sentimental, simply beautiful. It sent me back to a Dutton disc of her earlier music, which I've always enjoyed:

    Indeed. I found her work on this Cambridge Chorale recording https://www.cambridgechorale.org.uk/...-mother-of-god
    where, among some very well-known and some brand new pieces, I discovered the beautiful Ave maris stella by Grieg.

    First complete recording, reportedly. (I think all the individual items have been recorded before, but not as a set.)
