Filled with passion and love
One of the delights of ITunes is that a lot of the classical recordings don't come from A-list outfits well-known in the U.S.. Yes, the engineering here sounds a little muted. Yes, one doesn't have the assurance that these are famous musicians. On the other hand, this outfit, which I know nothing about, sings the Gloria with more intimacy and love than I have heard on other recordings. Further, they are not singing the Latin with American or even English accents, and you can hear the difference: it's delightful. And the musicians are very good. A thoroughly memorable performance, at a nice price.
