- Customer Reviews:
The Originals Series offers listeners the opportunity to explore key albums from the Yellow Labels LP era and experience the power and passion of performances by a host of visionary artists.
Now DG welcomes ten new titles to the range, including Claudio Abbados acclaimed 1981 recording of Berliozs monumental Te Deum: an album that still leads the field 35 years later. Sung text and translation are included in the booklet.
This is such a splendid record that few words are needed to exalt it and fewer still to carp. Abbado s sense of phrasing and timing is exemplary and he draws wonderfully committed singing from all his choirs. --Hugh Macdonald, Musical Times, April 1983

This recording places me closer to the orchestra and choir, while the other places me in the middle of the Cathedral'snave. Both soloists are excellent, but had different approaches.
Simply stated, this performance was a concert piece, while the other was a cathedral performance. I'm keeping both - - -This one to listen to how Berloiz put together his vision. The other one to place me into a religious experience. Five stars for both, but for differing reasons.
