Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Philips) Ariel Ramirez – Misa Criolla/Navidad Nuestra (José Carreras)

front-small-boxset
This excellent album is something to treasure. If you ever buy only one CD with Jose Carreras, this one might just be the one!!!
Although this was recorded just before the treatment for leukemia started (I believe Carreras already knew about it), it was the perfect choice at that time. His voice retains it’s beautiful pureness throughout, which no one can match, and he doesn’t need to force his instrument. Listen to some of the phrasing, especially when he is singing pianissimo in the slow passages, it’s almost unbelievebly beautiful. The way he “speaks” the words and the depth of emotion, he is inside the music, inside the the words. That the composer was present (playing the piano) does of course add to the glorious result of these sacred pieces.
