Very nicely done.
The bass soloist is, in fact, Richard Clement. He can at times seem to dip below the pitch but the consistency of his tone and his interpretation is among the best I have heard.
The chorus is absolutely astounding! Robert Shaw definetly fine tunes each voice part and makes the best choices musically and diction wise. The Orchestra is also outstanding. As for the soloist the Soprano is not as good as she should be. But the baritone, who is a young Nathan Gunn, is phemoninal. Gunn at times seems screamy at the top, but makes up for it with his wonderful diction, musical skills, and gorgeous milky lyric baritone voice...
Robert Shaw's voice is just amazing!!! His diction is so clear and is line is impecable. Just beautiful!
