5.0 out of 5 stars Church Geeks Will Love It May 15 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As a choral singer who grew up on Dubois' "The Seven Last Words of Christ" and loved to sing it, I have been searching for a recording for a couple of years. Finally!! And, this rendition is so good, it has me singing along. Few organists get the thunder right. Frederick Swann does (of course). Few choirs get the tempo right. This one does. The soloists are talented and the sweetness of "Verily" reminds me of the best live rendition I ever heard. I am so pleased with this album that I have ordered it for my sisters (who love this Dubois work as much as I do) and a few choir members with whom I've sung in the past. My only regret is that my father, a star tenor who performed it many times, is not alive to hear it. BRAVO!! AND....Mendelssohn's "Hear My Prayer" is an unexpected but delightful bonus, as is the Swann organ solo.

5.0 out of 5 stars A recording absolutely worth your consideration July 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
I actually purchased this CD because it has 'Hear My Prayer' on it. However, the clarity and balance between choir and organ on this CD is the best I have heard in any recording. If you're tired of hearing the organ blast away choirs' words or listening to choirs that sound as though they're singing in a huge cavern where all the words join as one, this CD will bring you much needed relief! Not only is the recording quality simply outstanding, the clarity of the choir and the soloists is very, very good.
BTW, the first piece on this CD - 'Hear My Prayer' - is so good that I can still listen to it several times a day. I can not imagine hearing a better recording of this piece of music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dubois' 7 Last Words July 5 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was thrilled to find this recording after having looked in vain last year for ANY recording of this work. In general this is a strong performance and true to the spirit and tone of the work I loved growing up. However, I was very annoyed by the English translation, which is significantly different from the version I learned along with the original Latin. This translation is even more formal and archaic than the original. For example, this version uses the phrase "He is death guilty" instead of the original, and more rational, "He of death is guilty". I found this recording to be peppered with awkward phrases like this one and the use of archaic and stilted language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seven Last Words of Christ Sept. 4 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have listened to this CD every day since I got it. I say that without exaggeration. This piece is beautifully done. The music and message are spellbinding. It is a timeless classic that has meaning for anyone who wants to understand the personality of Christ and the essence of his message. The Choir of the First Methodist Church in Lubbock, TX has done a wonderful job. The soloists are powerful. I can't say enough good about it.
