Revisited with the whole Black Bird gang…new rip in 192k from March 2016
Being somewhat of a fanatic about Carmina Burana, I have had occasion to listen to several recordings of these songs…and I own around 10 different versions on vinyl and CDs.
This recording is, without a doubt, the best one there. From the opening of ‘O Fortuna’, where the silence speaks as eloquently as the crash of the music, through the solos of the sorpranos at the end, which makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up, it is so clear and pure, the performance is superb.
