All of the works on this disc are pretty good. They provide OK background filler that's sonorous and relaxing. However, the Allegri?! Everything is fine, I suppose, except when the boy soprano kicks in. This poor kid is really struggling in parts, almost runs out of breath, and it's really noticeable, a couple of times, and just generally ruins the experience as far as I'm concerned. For such a beautiful work, whomever selected this compilation really mucked up.
Thank you for your feedback.

This cd introduced me to Allegri's Miserere. It is one of the most beautifull music I have ever heard. Since then I have studied other cd's which featured this psalm. I have heard many since and outside of Jeremy budd's rendition, it remains my favorite.I am and shall always be partial to boys choirs. Saul Quirke has a beautifull treble voice and of course the Westminster cathedral choir and the King's college choir under Stephen Cleobury is as wonderfull as ever. I strongly reccomend this cd.

The first time I heard this recording I was moved to tears. As if Seraphs descended from heaven to sing live at my side. The voices are so soft, not forced or too strong. They float in the air like wind and they penetrate the heart. This is a treasured collection and I listen to it from time to time when I need solitude and peace of mind.

This CD is one of the treasures of my collection, not merely for the Miserere, which is beautiful and haunting, or for the brilliant engineering, which places you inside the choir loft, but for the sequence of other selections, chosen for variation and contrast and suitability and for providing a beginning, middle and fitting end to the program. And not a weak selection among them, either musically or subjectively speaking--I enjoy them all, and their complexity and subltety will allow for innumerable hearings.

Beautiful, and so uplifting. Humans still have some qualities not all is lost. What the human voice can do is amazing.
