Copland/Barber - Dunedin Consort - Hi Fi Choice

01 June 2007
Hi Fi Choice
Alvin Gold
4½ Stars

Music: This is the debut on the Linn label for the excellent Dunedin Consort, a mixed choir here singing a capella in vocal works by two of America's greatest composers. The Barber includes a very intense transcription for mixed chorus of the Adagio from his String Quartet Op 11, which is much better known in the popular version for string orchestra.

Sound: This is a stunning performance, and a brilliant recording, recorded to give very distinct and well disposed spatial sense, and better separation of individual voices. Vocal intonation is also very distinct, it is a good thing that the quality of the singing and ensemble are good enough to sustain the examination.
