    Bizet, Symphony in C


    From my recently ordered box set. I've been ordering a lot of downloads recently, and I've noticed that since they're on a hard disk, after a while, I forget I have them, because I can't see them. But every morning that I walk into my listening room, there is my collection of Beecham recordings smiling at me (well, it looks more like a grin). (And next to him, Klemperer is scowling, but I don't let that get to me.)

    From last night -

    Duruflé - Requiem
    Jeremiah Stephenson, Dulci Jubilo & Christopher Gibert
    Rocamadour



    Over the course of eleven days in August 2020, the French town of Rocamadour hosted the fifteenth edition of Festival de Rocamadour, a music festival dedicated to sacred music from the classical, baroque, and romantic periods. On August 16, the young British organist Jeremiah Stephenson performed at the medieval Basilique Saint-Sauveur with the French chamber choir Dulci Jubilo under the direction of its founder, Christopher Gibert. The organ plays a central role in this atmospheric concert, which opens with Trois motets by composer and organist Thierry Escaich (*1965). The three-part suite is made up of Eaux natales, Le Masque, and Vers l’espérance. Requiem by composer and organist Maurice Duruflé (1902-1986) follows. The concert concludes with Timor et tremor, from Quatre motets pour un temps de pénitence by Francis Poulenc (1899-1963).
    I love this version using a chamber choir!

    Of course, I’m a Strauss lover, too. He’s in my ‘Top 5’ favorite composers. I bought this Decca set not too long ago, but I only bought it for the Mehta performances, which are outstanding. I already owned most of the performances from this set, but you can’t find the Mehta performances outside of this set.

    I also own this newer reissued Decca set, but Mehta’s not in it and they replaced his performances with Blomstedt, which I’m not complaining, because they’re excellent, too.

    There is always the problem of finding a set that is OOP in good condition and at an attractive price.
    I was aware of the newer set set but this one seems more attractive to me.
