Music Review: Great Choral Classics

Great Choral Classics  Laser Light Digital
This is a mixture of religious and operatic music.  Operatic music is usually not my thing, but I do enjoy religious music.  Most of that in this case is in Latin.  I found Bach’s Mass in B Minor, Sanctus very enjoyable.  It had the basic theme firmly planting but also with entertaining runs.  Mozart’s Requiem Mass: Luz Eterna was also very well done.  I always have loved Handel’s Messiah, and this CD presents “For Unto Us a Child is Born.”  This is an all time favorite and a joy to listen to.  Joseph Hadyn’s “The Creation” also falls into this group.  This CD is topped off with Beethoven “Symphony NO. 9 4th Movement (excerpt)” which is really very moving.  The choir chords are very lovely.  It is not as enjoyable when it gets into the soloist part.
