CD Reviews

Another Wonderful Collection of Duets (and solos)
Jody Palm | Greeneville, TN United States | 05/29/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a follow-up CD to their Sweet Power of Song CD (see my review, if you like) of solos and duets and is just as wonderful. This time, they take on Purcell, Mendelssohn, Rossini, several French composers and several British ones as well. (For those of you who prefer listening to songs in English, there are more songs in English on this CD than on the Sweet Power... CD.)Content: (again, my apologies for missing diacriticals and umlauts)
Purcell (realised by Britten):
*Sound the Trumpet
*I attempt from love's sickness to fly
*Lost is my quiet for ever
*Fairest Isle
*What can we poor females do?Mendelssohn:
*Wasserfahrt
*Volkslied
*Auf Flugeln des Gesanges
*Neue Liebe
*Abendlied
*Maiglockchen und die BlumeleinRossini:
*La pesca
*Anzoleta co passa la regata
*La promessa
*Duetto buffo di due gattiGounod: La siesta
Delibes: Les trois oiseaux
Massenet:
*Revons, c'est l'heure
*Joie!Paladilhe: Au bord de l'eau
Aubert: Cache-cacheBalfe: Trust her not
Sullivan: Coming Home
Quilter: It was a lover and his lass
Britten:
*Mother Comfort
*Underneath the abject willowSome of these were new to me and I fell in love with them. For example, Mother Comfort by Britten. Wow. And his folk-song setting of Lost is my Quiet Forever is just lovely. Another I'd never heard, but fell in love with immediately, was Massenet's Revons, c'est l'heure. Just hauntingly beautiful. There are also fun songs as well, like the Cat Duet (Duetto buffo di due gatti) by Rossini and to some degree, Trust Her Not and What can We poor Females Do.Many of these are not your usual fare, so I value having this CD. If you're into vocal music, you will too."
