My Favorite Recording of Mass in C Minor!
Imagine clouds of heaven parting, and then rays of sun light piercing through as Kiri te Kanawa's voice opens track 1... in Amadeus (the movie), they played this part when Salieri read through Mozart's music and dropped the pages in ecstatic envy---I know thats not how it really happened in history, but still, it's a beautiful, transcendent piece of music. Lord have mercy!
Get yourself in a comfortable position and turn this up loud on a good system; and then be astounded.
This is the greatest chamber orchestra in the world playing one of the greatest pieces ever written. This is a truly extraordinary recording, and a must have!
