Recent CD reviews

My recent CD reviews on Music Web:-


Immortal Fire:Girl Choristers and Lay Clerks of Winchester Cathedral:Griffin

A fine selection of 20th century motets; a good showpiece for the relatively new Winchester Girls choir, though I would have liked more words.


Kalman:Die Ziegeunerprimas

One of Kalman's earliest successes, a charming disc but the dialogue has been replaced by a spoken narration


Telemann:Ein Feste Burg:Carus

Interesting collection of Telemann's shorter religious pieces


Swiss German Folk Songs

Swiss German folksongs in clever (sometimes too clever) arrangements from a talented Swiss vocal ensemble.


Baroque Oboe Concertos

Reissue; showcases talents of brilliant Norwegian oboist; stylistically these are rather old-fashioned though.


Handel:L'Allegro:Naxos

Creditable but disappointing release.


Baroque Duets

Lovely new disc from a talented Australian soprano and mezzo-soprano, do get to know them.
