Priceless, Guido! Thanks!

La sto ascoltando ora e, a parte la registrazione poco definita e sbilanciata (microfoni molto più vicini all'orchestra che al coro?) mi sembra molto più potente della registrazione in studio.
Il modo in cui il coro sussurra la seconda parte del Dies Irae, o la voce piena della Tebaldi nel Liber Scriptus sono momenti di grande canto. Grazie.

Great Post! I've been looking for this performance for a while. -But do you know which track should start the 2nd CD? #11, #12, #13? Thanks.

Guido said...

@All - Welcome!

@Dil: No, I dont'know: is a torrent download, never seen the original. But I suppose from the Offertorium (Domine Jesu) - track 12

guido, thank you very very much, from boston, for all the great music. now, with the requiem i've been having a problem: tried to get part 1, repeatedly, for quite some time, but for some reason it always gets stuck after 22.9mb. could you please reupload it?! all other parts work great.
once again, THANK YOU!
