Product Description

CD87696 Verdi Requiem Leeds 1983 Plowright/O'Neill/Howell/Hodgson

BBC Radio 3 broadcast the Verdi Requiem Mass in 1983 after the Leeds International Music Festival in Yorkshire. The Leeds Town Hall must be a fearsome place to record in. I have no doubt their engineers did what they could to tame the acoustic, but as you can hear on this recording they were not 100% successful. Nevertheless the passion and drama of the performance is clearly audible. Four wonderful soloists, trilling well in "Hostias" and led by a marvellous conductor, Mark Elder give this concert a very special rating.

Two small tape drop-outs seem insignificant to me.

Best wishes to all Roger D Bell Lancashire England

VHS audio tape from cassettes copied to .wav and ripped to mp3 at 320 kbps, with tracks. There is some ambient noise from the hall, and a bit of tape hiss. Playing time is almost 83 mins so I have divided it at Track 7 for CD burning if needed.
