Very powerful and moving, April 9, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Greatest Choral Show on Earth (Audio CD)
These two CD’s, one titled Music Sublime and the other Music All-Powerful, bring together some of the greatest choral masterpieces ever composed. The All-Powerful CD, by the way, is not easy listening.
Many of the performances are simply the best available, however the performance of Mozart’s Requiem, one of my favorite works, on this CD doesn’t capture all the power and mystery of this glorious masterpiece. Also surprising is that the CD’s don’t include anything from Mozart’s Great Mass in C, the powerful Finale of Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ, or Vivaldi’s Gloria. No Schubert either, and Borodin’s powerful choruses from Prince Igor are also left out. Well, you can only fit so much on two CD’s, but the above mentioned works are, in my humble opinion, more important than some of the music selections on these discs. If you love choral music, however, get ready for music paradise. And if you don’t love choral music already, what better way to get started.

Great Choral performances, January 10, 2014

I enjoy the performances of the various choruses from a number of musical selections on these two CDs. To me, this set is worth what may have been the price of admission to the live performances. It is an excellent selection.

Cheap title, but wealth of song, December 5, 2012

Given the title, I was reluctant to buy it. But I’ve since listened to it dozens of times. It fills my home with a monastic peacefulness. There are 2 discs in the set. The first is titled “Music Sublime” and the second “Music All-Powerful”. The choirs are well-known, distinguished groups (Chicago Symphony Chorus, Kings College Choir, London Philharmonic Choir, St. John’s College, etc.) Some of the works are accompanied with orchestra, others are ‘a cappella’. There are 35 works in the 154-minute set. It has introduced me to works and composers with whom I was unfamiliar. I’m happy that I took a chance on this.
