Any thoughts on the differences? I liked the Ying Quartet, so I imagine the issue will be that they just differ a bit (or a lot).

Hi Neal - both of the versions that I own sound excellent to me; the sound on the Ying disc is really 'up front' and warm - appears that we both like the standard SQ version of this work!  :D

BTW - if you do not have that Tchaikovsky work & also want the 2 cello version of Arensky's SQ, then I would strongly recommend the Raphael Ensemble performances - let us know!  Dave :)

Now playing CD2 from the following set for a first listen.  CD1 was excellent with some great choral and solo singing - Lynne Dawson was fabulous IMO ...

Great recording, Conor. 8) Bantock's music is so gorgeous and lush.

Yes this Disc is lovely - I bought this one after you had talked about Bantock on TC! :)

Tranquil and lovely:



A balm for my heart after a dear friend just learned that the pain in her back and chest is a ravenous, aggressive lung cancer that's already metastasized to her kidneys and throughout her bones. I guess we won't be growing old together after all. Her husband, one of my closest friends and a cancer survivor, is in shock.

Perhaps I should make a gift of this CD to them...they're country/western fans, but surely music this beautiful and soothing would help ease their troubled souls...?
So sorry to hear that. There are no easy words. Cancer is a painful disease in so many ways. You (and they) have our best hopes/wishes despite the dire diagnosis.
Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

That's just awful news. A reminder that our lives and happiness are so incredibly fragile - take care!

Heinrich FINCK from the Mass for 6  voices: Sanctus
OCKEGHEM Missa cuiusvis toni for  4 voices,  can be adapted to whatever Mode is required for the day, here arranged in the Dorian.
DESPREZ   Missa Malheur me bat
Schola Cantorum Stuttgart     Clytus Gottwald, cond.
I'm tempted to look for other versions of the Ockeghem to explore the differences in the sound the different modes produce.
