CD Reviews

Buy this for the choral adagio (Agnus Dei )
R. Foster | US | 05/22/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A strong CD offering. The choral version of adagio for
strings is by far the highlight. There are some other fine
tracks as well. The audio quality is fine, giving a good
value for my 10 bucks. Leonard Slatkin, is in his usual
fine form here, and gives an excellent performance of the
original adagio for strings. All the other tracks
are good as well. There is some very powerful music here.
I'm glad I bought this disc.

Since I already own several copies of Barber's Adagio.
I bought this for the choral version which in itself
was worth the purchase.

If you have only a casual interest in Classical Music,
you will almost certainly love the Adagio and Angnus Dei,
and you will at the very least find the other tracks interesting.
