I have listened to several recordings of The Dream of Gerontius. The only one in my CD collection is my favorite: 1989 Handley/RLPO with Rolfe, Wyn-Rogers, and George. I enjoy the relatively undramatic singing, the large and excellent chorus, and Handley's tempi and balances (he's one of my favorite conductors).View attachment 190990
I also have a version of this work by Sir John Barbirolli and the Halle Orchestra.I prefer this one.
If anyone can recommend other recordings of this work,I would appreciate your suggestions.
I think I will finally buy this CD as I can't listen to this recording on streaming, and keep hearing that it's outstanding.Still working my way through the VW symphonies.
Vaughan Williams, Symphony No 7 'Sinfonia antartica' - BBC SO, Martyn Brabbins.
Another very fine performance from Brabbins and the BBC SO - the recording omits the spoken introductions which is my preference.
